You will need a very long screwdriver , You will need to get under the front of the car and look up to find the hood latch (you may need to remove some of the splash covers to gain access.)When you locate the latch find the lever from where the cable clips on and lever it with your screwdriver , It should click and release the hood.
It is a mission but if you keep at it you will get it.
Good Luck.

George

If you look between the grill and the hood you may be able to see the hood release cable and get hold of it with some needle nose pliers and pull it to release it. Otherwise a screw driver to release hood latch

2005 quattro , battery is dead and hood wont release.Is it an elecrtonic release?


Heidi, No electric release. The latch is probably stuck. While you pull the interior hood release have an assistant push down and pull up repeatably/vigorously until hood releases from stuck position. Lube latch and cable before closing hood. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

2008 Pontiac Vibe battery is dead. Can't pop hood with hood release to even get to battery. How else can we get the hood opened?


What is wrong with hood release?
Sometimes I use vice-grips on hood release cable, have a helper standing at the end of the hood. At the same time you pull the release cable, have the helper pop the hood in area of release mechanism with palm of hand, sometimes that works to open hood. If you get it up, lube everything.
Some makes and models, I can remove front grille and reach the release mechanism. Don't know about your vehicle?

Hood release cable not attached to release mechanism under the hood. Can the hood be popped (opened) from front?? . Battery went dead and when I tried to open the hood the cable was loose (detached)


This same thing happened to my Blazer. If you reach your hand up behind the front bumper and use a hammer you can hit the release latch and it will open.

How to open hood.


You have to find the broken cable from underneath the vehicle and pull it with a pair of vice grips until it releases. You cannot relatch the hood until a new cable is installed, so have it towed to a shop instead of trying to drive it with the hood "tied".
