I assume you know to pull the hood release latch under the dash... Now go to the front of the car and find the lock slide, push it towards the right. and pull the hood towards you while lifting... Then go to the back of the hood( close to the firewall) and raise it up. The hood opens from rear. Hope this helps!

Hood release cable out from hood latch

from under the car you will need to get up to where the actual catch mechanism is located, from there you should be able to manually release the hood, it may take some effort , but there will be access,although limited... if there is part of the cable accessible grab it with vice grips and pull, hood should release. if not you'll have to find the part on the catch itself that the cable connects too and pull it to release.

The hood will not open on my 2002 subaru legacy. can you help me?

try having someone hold the hood release open while you lift the hood. sometimes if you push down first then up it will release. If there is no way to get it open you might try to see the bolts through the grille to unbolt the hood latch through the
grille. If you cant get to it that way try to come from the bottom. Sometimes you can put a long screwdriver through the grille opening and reach the hood latch where the cable hooks and pry it the same way the cable would pull it. If you cant get it through the grille you will have to come from the bottom with a long screw driver to reach the hood latch at the radiator support and find the latch release action. you will have to remove some splash covers under the rediator support.
