I had the same problem on my MX-3. You can reach up from under the car and feel for the spring release to pop the hood. The problem is, the manufacturer put a piece of flat metal in your way, I guess so strangers can't pop it. The metal is not all that hard. It's like an L shaped flap about 3 inches accross horizontally. Reach up with a wrech, or plyers, and bend the piece down so that it's vertical. You will now be able to feel up there for the sping release and pop the hood. Now go back inside and torque the bolt behind the hood release handle, below the dask board, so that you can get more resistance and make it function again.
