Question about Ford Explorer
While looking through the grill, locate the hole on the right-hand side and very slightly to the rear of the latch mechanism.
Using a thin long-handled flat-tipped screwdriver, coming from right to left at a 45 degree angle, insert it into the hole and pull the handle of the screwdriver to the left in a prying movement. Don't use much force because you don't want to break the latch.
It'll pop right open.
Otherwise The front grill needs to be removed - then you can see the cable and have better access to the mechanism.
Use a vice grips to pull on the cable if it is exposed, or slide your screwdriver behind it... and pop it!!
Please accept this answer to remove it from the work queue.
