SOURCE: can't get hood open
Get behind the hood release lever and grab the wire with a pair of vice grips then pull. After you get it open adjust the wire so this won't happen again.

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: hood latch won't release
This has happened to me several times, this will take two people, but all you need to do is have one person pull the hood release, while person number 2 pushes down on the hood, and then pulls up...that ought to do the trick

Use a good brand of de-watering oil - and spray it over the latch to remove all water. Also get some up inside the cable. - Then - use a thicker "multi-purpose" oil on the latch - which will stay longer than the dewatering oil.
Car not starting may be problems with battery - keep it charged over winter as you use lights more. If it is a petrol - take off leads ONE AT A TIME - clean with dry cleaning fluid or brake cleaner - and refit.
Clean inside AND OUTSIDE of distributer cap, and refit
Clean coil, and rotate connections for a good contact.
This should solve problems for you. If not - post back before rating.
If it improves - please rate as Fixya. Thank you.

SOURCE: Broken Hood Release
In short no there isn't, however it's most likely your plastic release lever is broken and not the metal cable, you need to open the cover over the release lever, there will be a cable you can pull using a gripper and it will release the bonnet, you can easily replace the plastic llever and it's reletively cheap.
Hope this helps, please don't forget to rate me.

Locate the interior hood-release lever under the dashboard on the driver's side of the interior of the car.
Lift up and toward you on the hood release lever. The lever is connected to a cable that releases the hood. The hood will pop up about 1/2 inch when you pull the lever.
Move to the front of the car and locate the exterior hood-release lever under the front of the hood. It is located near the middle of the vehicle, just beyond where the front edge of the hood meets the body. Lift up on the inner lever.
Lift up on the edge of the hood while holding the inner lever in place. When the hood is up, find the hood prop and raise it, setting its tip in the hood-prop mount on the hood, to hold the hood up while you work in the engine bay.
