need pictures.

First remove the front grill assembly (usally six screws). You will be able to see underneath the hood latch. Get an old wire coat hanger and bend a hook in one end, work this underneath the latch until you grab the latch and pull sideways (to the right) until the latch pops. You may have to do this several times but it will work. I had to do it on my 94 Buick. Go to a junkyard and pick up a used cable assembly and install it. Good luck. .

I used the same coathanger to open the hood instead of running a new cable . I hook it up to the connector on the hood latch , ran it out thru the grill and place a small handle on the coat hanger and it opens right up. boy am i cheap

It depends on what caused it to be locked up. You will need to disassemble the engine and repair or replace any broken parts.

Whether and how you can repair a broken vase depends on how badly damaged it is. Assuming it is in only a few pieces, using super glue will help to repair it as best as possible.

The store where you bought your PC will most likely have a repair center. I would take your broken PC back to the store you purchased it from and see what type of repair packages they have.
