On each side of the latch there is an 8mm screw that can be removed through the front, between the hood and grill They are aprox 6" apart.
The latch itself has two locator pins that slide into the front suppoprt behind the grill.
After removing the two screws, gently pry the whole latch away from the support. The hood can be raised, taking the latch with it.
Access to the release lever is behind the latch. It is now exposed.
pull the tiny release lever toward the drivers side and latch will come loose. Good luck!

the outer cable may have come loose near the lock, if the grille screws are accessable remove the grille and you will have access to the underside of the lock, you may need a screwdriver to push the lock lever aside to unlock the bonnet

you can often release the hood latch from under the car, or through the grille, by reaching up to the hood latch mechanism with a long screwdriver or pliers, or a piece of coat hanger, whichever works in your particular case. G/L

if it broke at the dash,cut the cable housing down to get to the cable and pull on it with pliers,
if it broke at the latch you can still open it you will need two long skinny screwdrivers and patients
