To open the hood on a 2001 Mercury Cougar when the hood latch cable snaps you will need to release the mechanism from the underside. You will need a mechanics prybar and look up from underneath the car, place the screwdriver tip in the release mechanism and turn.

How does an AUX cable stay plugged into the port?

Most cable plugs are held just by friction, but some types have a notch that a spring loaded contact in the receptacle catches on to lock the connector in place (e.g. phone plugs, miniphone plugs) once it is fully seated. But when you get to more advanced and modern specialty cables (e.g. RJ11 telephone, Ethernet) a spring loaded release latch is incorporated that snaps when the cable is inserted and completely prevents the cable from being accidentally removed. But of course no type of AUX cable uses or needs this.

How do you open a locked glove box on a 2000 Mazda protege?

2000 Protege did not have a key-lock glove box. Pull the glove box release handle all the way open, then keep pulling it till it snaps off. Behind where the handle pivot point was is an opening to the inside of the latch mechanism. Stick a thin tool in the rectangular opening and push the latch bolt down to release the glove box. Once open, remove the 3 screws that attach the latch to the glove box, and head to your nearest junk-yard for a replacement latch.

How do you open the hood on a 1997 Honda Accord if the hood latch cable is broken?

There is a rachet right below the hood that you can reach from radiator grill. Take a long thin screw driver, reach it and turn that rachet. You will hear the "click" sound and the hood will pop open. There is a black plastic cover that snaps in place which is covering the latch assembly. You have to reach in through the front grill and pop the plastic cover off and let it fall to the bottom of the radiator since you can't get it out through the grill. Looking in through the grill at the bottom of the latch you will see a long slot. That is where you have to put the screwdriver to pull the unlocking lever to your left to let the hood release.
