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.

I found a few solutions to your problem here:
A lot of them have some merit, depending on whether you want to actually manually open the hood or use the inovative options posted there. Either way, i hope this helps and best of luck with your problem!

try having a second person wiggle and lift on hood while you pull on the release handle inside. most times this will open it but it also means the latch needs adjusted and it will keep doing the same till set right.

Obtain one of those "portable air compressor/battery booster/power supply" ($50 or borrow one) and charge it using the supplied a/c adapter.
Then plug it into your 12v outlet (a.k.a.cigarette lighter) and the hood release (and your radio) should work.
