Question about Volkswagen Golf
The T shaped hood relese in the hood snapped off and i have no way of getting the hood open to try and fix it. The hood release on the inside of the car works fine
Take the car to a shop. Trade a major headache for a few dollars. Trust me, it's worth it.

you will find a black lever either on the right or left kick plate (that is the trim piece from the floor to the dash on the outer floor pan) inside the car, under the shelf, under the glovebox depending whether left or right hand drive.is is a bit dark to see it tucked up as it is.

SOURCE: hood release cable level inside
Have someone press down on the hood while you pull the cable.Most likely the latch is just sticking and needs a good shot of penetrating oil(WD40).May even try having them bump the hood while hold the latch.Good luck!

The cable and the plastic lever housing are readily available at your dealer and are cheap. To replace the cable, disconnect from plastic lever on left drivers side of front seat. then follow cable until you reach where it goes through the fire wall. Work cable thru just to the outer side of firewall. Then take the hood latch end of the NEW cable and run it thru the firewall like you did with the old cable. Now find the two ends of cable under the hood and securely tape them together side by side. Next you disconnect the old cable from the hood latch and GINGERLY pull it thru the engine compartment , thru an opening in your radiator supports. This is an old trick when rewiring a house or boat trailer. Then connect both ends of the cable. Make sure you grease the hood latch with WD 40. This will ensure that the hood will "pop up" when you pull the lever. This job took all of 40 minutes.. while I'm not a Mechanic, I am a Machinist. If the dealer charges 1 1/2 hrs labor then I'm in the wrong trade!
