Question about Dodge Stealth
Have you tried to have somebody rock and shake the hood while you pull on the release? The latch might just not be moving back far enough to release the catch, and a bit of maneuvering might just be all that it needs. Try that, I don' think that taking the bumper off will give you enough access, you need to remove the grille, and you need the hood open to do that.

In order to help you I ill need the exact model and year of the Dodge. This is a cable release? if so have you tried having someone push down over the hood latch area while you try to release it, this many times allows the hood to "pop" open, then lube the hood latch with spray Lithium grease, available from any auto parts store or hardware store.

Welcome to Fixya
Use small piece of wood and wedged it in between the hood and grill and pull the latch. Make sure to replace the cable before you close the hood.
Thank you for using Fixya!

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.
