on the left side of the drivers side their is a panel with the hood release
Pull off the cover of the hood release and you will see a cable connected to the hood release. take some pliers and give it a good pull.
if you dont hear a click, have someone pull the hood up while you pull on the hood release cable. next their will be little space to take off the grille for easier acces. take off the grille carefully by prying it off carefully on each side. push the grill up and pull it towards you going up then down.
Now all you have to do is stick a flathead screwdriver or philips. and on the bottom of the hood release on the hood stick the screwdriver under the release and push the screw driver down while pushing the hood up.

SOURCE: Hood safety latch
If its like mine, the release handle doesn't poke up, you have to press downward about 8-10 inches to the left of the ford emblem on the grill. Usually, the handle is INSIDE the grill, but mine is in the crack between the hood and frame when you pop the hood. Hope that helps.

Get a cutter and cut back the outer plastic or metal sheath over the inner cable core, then with the core exposed use a pair of locking pliers to pull the cable and hopefully release the hood latch.
