You can also remove the grill from the outside with a screwdriver and go through there. My car rusted shut and that is what I had to do. There are some small black screws around the edges of the grill, I believe there are only 4. Remove those and the grill pops right off.

Your're going to have to try and reach up from under the front bumper. You might have to remove a plastic skirt under the front of the engine, but you can try and pull the mechanical latch with either a pair of needlenose pliers, or you can try and pry aside gently with a flathead screwdriver. Try to picture where it is by looking through the grill, than just snake your arm up the inside. hey its better than breaking your grill or screwing up you hood right? good luck

1992 Toyota Corolla hood wont open, Cable broke under hood.


first, try smacking the hood at one of the front corners while someone else pulls the release handle. or even after you've pulled on it. if that works, once open, adjust and lubricate the hood latch assembly. if it still won't open, and it's the cable and not the latch you'll have to replace it anyway, so instead of removing the grill, cut the cable behind the pull lever under the dash where you can reach it. then skin the outer cable insulation away from the actual steel cable exposing an inch or two of it. then holding the insulation and plastic housing with pliers, grab the steel cable itself with pliers and pull it to open the hood. then replace the cable. the further you can reach up under the panel the better your chances of getting past the broken part of the cable and avoid removing the grill. you might also be able to gain access from up under the car if you're lucky.
