Question about 2002 Toyota Sequoia
Hood will not open due to non cable release. any way to open it to repair it?
It actually is going to depend upon where the break in the cable is. I'm basing this on the model year but you might check to see if any of the cable is still extended & broken off at the lever you use to open it. If you can see the broken strands you can easily clamp onto that with vice-grips, or similar pliers & pull on the exposed cable to open it. IF you cannot see the cable, you are limited as the whole intent of the cable system was to prevent anyone from opening the hood without the release cable. You can attempt to determine where it broke based upon the cable you pull out of it, cut the cable past that point without cutting the inner, "pull" cable, then pull on the exposed cable once out.
Next step would be to do some fishing out under the hood opening area to see if the small cable could be snagged & pulled but that's a slim chance.
Finally, Body shops are the best at getting to things like this since they usually have to dissasemble those parts for repairs, they would be best suited to remove other parts to gain access. good luck
