try pushing down on that side of the hood when you pull the lever (takes 2 people, or 1 with 4 9ft long arms). Keep holding the lever while you release the center latch and lift the hood. I can't promise it'll work, but it usually does. sometimes you have to play with it a while.

This is kind of tricky. OK let's start, you have to crawl into the rear hatch area from the inside of the car. You'll have to pull the rear panel off the hatch, a screwdriver between the panel and hatch near the window will work. There might be 2 screws on the panel you could take out. The trick is to pull the panel far away enough to stick your arm down towards the latch and release it by hand. We did this at the dealer all the time.

It can be a pain, even for a skill mechanic, BUT you have to get under and trip the leaver or sometime if the cable broke on the inside you can strip the cable shroud and use plyers to pull the cable

It may be that your hood release cable that runs from the hood release is broken. You'r going to have to try and manually release the hood latch by tripping the release through the grill with something like a long screwdriver. You should be able to identify the latch trigger by following the cable to end.
You might also try having push down on the hood while another person tries to trip the latch if the cable isn't broken, but just stuck.
