Question about 1996 Ford Contour
The first thing You need to do is go to a Salvage yard where you can remove this part yourself. What you want to find is how the car is put together. Observe how the Grille comes apart. Maybe take a digital picture. Remove the hood release from the Salvage car and keep the extra attaching nuts and bolts in case you drop some when reassembling your car.
Second, disconnect the hood release handle from the interior of the car. Then pull on the cable and if it is broken pull out the broken piece. It is possible that it broke close to the interior. Then you would be able to cut the cable in a place which still has the metal piece in it. You could then grab the remaining cable and pull on it to free the hood. You may have to work from beneath the car to access the broken part.
But if you went to the Salvage yard you will know how to remove a grille without breaking your own grille. Now you have two solutions-grab the broken part without removing the grille, or removing the grille and then work on the cable.
I hope this helps you.
