I had the same problem with my 1995 LHS. The only remedy is to carry a set of pliers in your glove box. I replaced the cable handle once but it broke again.

If the cable isn't broken then you shouldn't have any issues opening the hood...

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.

Take it to a body shop as they have to open then on wrecks.

You can still pull the cable. Reach under the dash you should be able to find it

To open the hood on the 2000 Beetle if the hood release lever is broken inside the car, you can remove the glove compartment of the vehicle and find the release cable inside the dashboard. Pull the cable to open the hood. You will then need to replace the hood release lever.?รฆ

grab the broken end of the cable with vice grips and pull it

If it is just the plastic handle broken, behind that is the cable that opens the hood. Just grab the cable with a pair of pliers and pull. You can probably just replace the inside handle and not have to run a new cable.

if you look up under the hood in front there a little slider that the cable runs to you can slide it and it should pop

Depends where the cable is broken. At very worst you must get under the front of the car behind the bumper reaching up to the hood latch and releasing it.

Try using a coat hanger with the ends cut off and bend it into shape to get under the hood and pull the cable release.

Listen carefully, go get a sledgehammer and then slam the hood with it as hard as possible.

If the cable release is broken for the hood on a 2002 Kia Spectra, a person could crawl under the car and see if they can locate the broken part of the cable. If it is still attached to the hood, they could pull it to trip the hood latch. Otherwise, the car will have to be put on a hoist, and a long pole used to trip the hood latch.
