With a pair of pliers pulling the latch.
Use a set of pliers to pull the cable even if the plastic latch is broken...
There is a screwdriver slot behind the grill that will operate the hood latch. Look for it on the driver's side
my latch is broken on my Honda and all i did was put a bungy cord thru the loop in the hood and pull it to the tow hitch on the bottom of the car and it works fine
IF the Cable is broken on the hood latch, I used a long, flat head screwdriver. Locate the eyelet under the hood, and push it with the screwdriver. It's difficult, but it works. Replace the hood latch before you close the hood. Good zluck.
Use a screwdriver to release the hood latch through the front grille. Take a look at the hood latch on another car to get an idea of how they work.
The only way i can think of would be to remove your bumper so you can get to the latch, and either unbolt the latch from the core support or unbolt it from the hood...
Take the grill out and remove the bolts holding the latch on.
i would probably use a screwdriver to nudge where the latch used to be to pop it open
Climb under the front of the engine compartment with a coat hanger and a flashlight, reach up and grab the latch and pull it down.
you take a hammer and smash it no i took the dash apart and found were the cable broke and pull it there and fix it before u close it

Have 1 person pull on cord with pliers and 2nd person use fist to pound on hood where hood latch is and/or use screwdriver to pry open hood.
If the cable release is broken for the hood on a 2002 Kia Spectra, a person could crawl under the car and see if they can locate the broken part of the cable. If it is still attached to the hood, they could pull it to trip the hood latch. Otherwise, the car will have to be put on a hoist, and a long pole used to trip the hood latch.
I assume you have tried opening it by pulling the hood release lever. Determine the cause of the hood not opening. If the release handle for the hood doesn't retract back into position after you pull it, it's likely that the cable leading to the latch is broken. If the release handle retracts as usual and you can feel it trying to release the latch, it may be the latch itself that is broken. It is more common for the latch to be broken or jammed than for the cable to be broken. Rule out the hood being jammed shut before you proceed as if the latch is broken. Have another person stand in front of the car and pull up on the hood while you stay inside the car and pull on the hood release cable. This may help unjam the hood if that is the problem. If this still doesn't help the hood lift up, you can proceed as if the latch unit is broken. Shine a flashlight through the front grill of the car to locate the latch unit. Once you can see it, use a screwdriver to go through the front grill and manipulate the screwdriver in different ways, trying to open the latch. The latch is spring loaded, so it may take pressure to open the latch manually. Be careful to stay away from the condenser for the air conditioning unit--the screwdriver could puncture a hole in it if you don't keep it only on the latch assembly.
i have a Chevy s-10 1990 and the hood wont release, and the latch is broke. what should i do
If you remove the grill from the front of the truck you can then access the safety latch and hood release. My latch had rusted so I had to do this using a flat head screw driver and lifting the safety latch which allowed for the hood release to open.
use a pry bar and replace hood after you break it
Find the hood control on the driver side of the car or try working the hood latch.
