Well if the cable snapped you will need to try to get the front grill to pop out with out breaking it and look up and in to get to the little latch for the hood release.

Hi. how can i open the hood with a snapped release cable?

Hi. This is a hard one it depends on where it broke,can you cut the housing to get to cable core and pull with pleirs, if it snapped at latch then you will need to remove the grill or go from the bottom and try to hit the release the same wat the cable did,sometime if you grab the cable near the latch and pull hard it will open, good luck.

How do i open the engine bonnett to a 94 vw jetta when the release cable broke

If you have the end of the cable, and the handle just broke, grab the cable with a pair of Vise Grips or something and pull it. If the cable broke off, you will have to try to get it from either under the car, or try to do it through the grille at the latch mechanism (we had to do that for my aunts cadillac once)

The cable for the hood latch in my 1972 VW Beetle seems to have snapped. How do I get the hood open to repair this?

at the handle you pull from inside the car, are you able to get to the cable that connects to the hood latch as you'll have to try to grab onto it with some pliers in order to pull on the cable. If you can't reach the cable from inside the car, you may be lucky and be able to get to it if you jack up the car as the cable should be running along the inside if your fenderwall. Hopefully you can get to the cable because of the the way your hood closes and there's no opening close enough to the latch for you to go through

Hood wont open on 1999 dodge durango

The cable to the hood is most likely broken. The hood can be opened from underneath by pulling the cable and replacement is not terribly difficult once the hood is open.
