its more fiddly than hard before you start look st the cable where it joins the latch and start following it back toward the lever you may have to lift some floor mats etc and the cable should be secured with clips along the way if you think you can get it out take it with you when you go to buy the new 1 and make sure they are the same. if this helps please rate joe

SOURCE: Hood Won't Open, and Lever Broke
Hi viper852004 , the only way you can do this is to remove the front grills and then you will be able to see the 2 sprung bonnet pegs, you will need to loosen the adjusting nut where it screws into the hood and unscrew it until it becomes unattatched from the hood, do this for both pegs and then you should be able to release the hood to fix the problem. the pegs will need to be reinstalled before driving the car as the hood will not close, hope this is of some help, regards mark.

SOURCE: Broken tab to hood release cable
Get a long screwdriver and try to release the secondary latch that way. Or if you have small hands reach up under the hood and pull the secondary latch toward the left.

one way would be to take off the bumber and pry it open. these cars should have back up plans but they dont. lol once you get it open try going to a junk yard and taking one out of another car. if not then buy one and get it put in professionally because its very difficult to do.

You may be able to disconnect the cable behind the broken pull, then use a set of pliers to activate (pull) the cable within the sleeve - Otherwise you'll probably have to see a mechanic or body shop, as they are difficult to access when the hood lock is engaged...
