Question about Cars & Trucks
By using a long lever and looking up from underneath see if you can push the latch to release the bonnet. To make the job easier you may need some one to push down on the bonnet at the same time to release the load on the latch

NO there is no manual way . get a good flash light and look at teh latch through the grill or from under the truck and try and pop it with a long flat blade screw driver

I have a similar problem with my 1992 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme. The way I open the hood is to reach my hand between the radiator and the front of the car, and for me there is a bar running right up the middle if I follew that too the top, and on the drivers side of that bar should be the hood release, and I feel around till I feel the hood release cable, and then I push on the lever that the cable is attached too, most of the time this works. Hope this helps.

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
