The best way to do this is to cut the plastic on the cable housing and then you can pull it with a pair of pliers. If its just the handle broken off the cable inside the car you can pull it there without any problems otherwise you are going to have to find a place to cut it you can reach without to much problem.

To release that go under your car in the front and reach up and locate the cable if there is one and follow it to the end there is a lever that you need to pull toward the drivers door if there is no cable then find that same lever by touch in the middle of your hood you will know what it feels like byits design it should feel like a small extended metal lever

That depends on a few things. If the cable has broken at the release handle, you can use Vice Grips or pliers to grab the end of the cable and pull. If the hood is stuck down you can have a helper pull up on the hood while you work the release in the car. If the cable has broken at the latch consult a pro for help. If you get a helper to hold the the hood release open on the inside and tap lightly, with the side of your fist, on the front of your hood just above the grill. This will usually work if the cable is not broken.

The best way to to try to find the cable and cut it and pull with pliers to open if the inside latch is broken. If not then you would have to go in from underneath or through the grill.

Disconnect the cable from the LeSabre battery. Follow the route of the cable and disconnect the other end. Pull the cable out, then fit the new cable in the same direction. Connect the non battery end, then connect to the battery.
