How do you open the hood when the cable brakes on a 1997 Oldsmobile cutlass supreme. the cable broke loose at the latch?

i had the same problem. the hood release is controlled by a cable. what i had to do was take off the cover by the driver side seat,grab the cable with a pair of vise gripps and pull the wire in the cable with a pair of pliers. it sounds crude but that's the only way to get the hood up. by the way,i would take it somewhere to get the cable replaced.it's buried!!!!!
