IF the Cable is broken on the hood latch, I used a long, flat head screwdriver. Locate the eyelet under the hood, and push it with the screwdriver. It's difficult, but it works. Replace the hood latch before you close the hood. Good zluck.
If the hood release does not work, the front grill comes off by removing 4-5 small screws. That allows access to the latch so it can be opened by pulling the cable or moving the latch itself. My hood release works when it wants to. It is very moody.
there is only one way, you have to get a socket, i think 13 mm and enough extensions to unbolt the latch from the hood
If the cable itself is still there get a pair of Vise Grip pliers and you should be able to pull it. If the cable is broken up inside the housing then you will need to remove the grill insert. I have a 92 Corsica and there were 4 screws that held this item in place. Reach up and move the lever that the small cable is attached and the hood should pop up as normal.
They do seem to bind up over time! At the latch handle, under the dash on the driver's side, see if it can be moved far enough to get tools in. Hesitate to suggest vise-grips, because you may well break the plastic handle. The right-angle end of a small pry-bar is about right, if it is notched deeply enough. After you get it open, you might see if you can spray lubricant into the cable, as well as lubricate the moving parts of the latch, underhood.
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.

dodge truck broken hood latch
how to get a 2001 isuzu trooper hood open if release cable is broken
The latch is broken, not the cable. You can still get to the cable where it is attached to the latch in the foot-well of the car. Grab the cable with a small vice-grip (or similar) and pull. Note that it is very unlikely the cable will break -the latch typically breaks before the cable since the latch is made from plastic and the cable from steel wire.
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.)
From under car... its not too bad on a lift you can find cable near the hood need to get the inner wire and pull with pliers
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.
you can get to the latch through the grill
omg u Have to go thru the grill and pull the release latch
If it is just the inside handle broken off you can pull the cable with a pair of pliers. If it is in the middle, you should be able to reach up from underneath and cut the cable and then pull the inside cable. If the latch end has pulled off, you may be able to trip the latch from underneath, or take the grill out and unbolt the latch.
