The Best thing to do is remove the cable and try to unwind the outter cable if you get lucky with unwinding the cable then with a pair of small vise grips grab the center cable and pull, if it pops loose open the hood and buy a new cable. If this is the only car you have to drive be sure you use a chain and bolt to hold it down while you drive it to the parts store to buy new cable. You will Have to buy from the Dealer or from a wrecking yard. If you can't get the cable loose from inside the cab you will need a pair of long needle nose plyers to reach threw the grill and pull on the release cable. good luck hope this helps. You might find a mechanic that has the tools to do it for a reasonable amount.

How to open the hood when the hood release is not working.


Pull the release and have someone hit the hood with there hand in the middle of the hood, by the latch/front. Then adjust the latch upwards. If the cable is broke then go from the bottom and push the release left or right to release. Follow the cable.

Interior hood release broke out around mounting bolt. Temporary mounted release but still can not release hood. No opening problems until now. How do I get the open?


If just the mounting broke & not the cable also, take a pair of vicegrips or good pliers on visible portion of steel cable & pull inward. If the cable itself is not broken it will pull out enough to open release.

Hood release broke


you are going to have to either remove the panneling to get at the cable and pull it with vise grip or try to get up inside the hood from the front and release the latch that way . either way is going to be tough to get to.
