These are the average prices for the parts, labor is 1.5 - 2.0 hours.
To unlock the hood look through the drivers side grille and you will see a slot in the latch assembly, insert a screw driver into the slot and turn it to open the latch.
To replace the cable is very easy, you will follow it from the release handle through the fire wall to the latch assembly.
If I have answered your question I ask that you please accept.
