How do you release a hood latch with a broken cable on a 1988 Sunbird?

If you can still see the wire, use pliers and pull, it should release the hood.

depends on the problem, it could be the hood release cable, or the latch. latch is very simple, the cable is also simple, just more of a routing problem.

The cable between the latch and the handle may be broken or needs adjustement to shorten the cable so that the latch will fully release.

i have a 1994 pnotiac sunbird that the handle broke off on the cable under the dash to open the hood. you can open the hood with a little patience and a fairly long screwdriver by releasing the latch under the hood. after this, on my sunbird, i just pulled the cable all the way out under the hood, tied it under the front of the car, and just pull it to release the switch. (thats only because i am too cheap and lazy to spend the money and time on a cable and install it.)
