HOW DO I OPEN HOOD ON CAR WHEN CABLE IS BROKEN
There are hood tools. But if it is stuck, you might have to jack her up, remove the wheel, and back fender skirt. Then the fun begins. If it is broken at the hood connection, you will have to bend a metal rod to reach, and pull.
There's a special tool that'll release the latch by sticking it in between the hood edge and windshield. Any Corvette shop or even a dealer should have this. I've seen it advertised in Vette parts catalogs.

If the cable isn't broken then you shouldn't have any issues opening the hood...
There are several companies specializing in Corvette parts. Most of them have available a devise that you install through the driver's door top hinge opening to open a hood that has a broken or stretched cable. Check it out, as they run only about $25.
Dealer said cable is run through a steel tube. They had to cut tube to replace broken cable.
Ecklers has the replacement cable and "Installation instructions" which show how to get the hood open so you can relace the cable. Tried to attach the diagram, but no attachment tool here.

you get the cable fixed then open it
If you can find the cable under the hood, or if you can get to the cable where it's broken, a pair of vise-grips and a healthy pull should open it up.

If the hood cable is broken on a Geo Prizm, the only option is to open the hood from underneath the vehicle. It is best to put the car up on a hoist and use a pole to trip the hood latch.
Hood release cable has connector nuts on both ends of the cable. Loosen the connector nuts. Remove the cable retainers. The cable will come off and can be replaced with a new hood release cable.
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.
How to open of my BMW 745LI Yr 2003 hood ,whose Hood latch is broken while tried to open the hood
will a 1985 corvette hood fit a 1993 corvette
I had the same problem. What I ended up doing is taking a cable and wrapping it to the hood pop of the car. I routed it so the cable comes just above the Drivers side headlight and I get the hood open by just pulling that cord. Should do the trick just nicely
you will need to buy a tool to release it, Ecklers sells them my hood release is stuck on the drivers side of a 1985 corvette. how do I get it to release? I there a bypass?
Auto enthusiast husband says can't be done at home. Mechanic needs it on the lift to find the break on the cable They make a special tool you can buy from a classic corvette shop. Comes with directions. They run between 20 and 40 $.
