To open the hood on the 2000 Beetle if the hood release lever is broken inside the car, you can remove the glove compartment of the vehicle and find the release cable inside the dashboard. Pull the cable to open the hood. You will then need to replace the hood release lever.?æ

If it is one that pops open when you pull a lever inside the car (by the driver's leg, usually), the spring is probably broken.

From there, you should be able to tell if the spring is broken - if so, go to an auto store with that spring in hand to find a new one. ----
