cable is probably broken
Expert:  Chad replied 3 years ago.
OK, what would you like info to do? Replace the hood release cable?
Opening the hood with the cable broken is alot of fun.If you think the cable broke, did it break at the release handle where you could use a pair of pliers to pull the cable to open the hood?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
tryed pulling cable, need to know how to get to hood latch
Expert:  Chad replied 3 years ago.
From under the car with a real long flat tip screwdriver. I will try to find a picture and post it for you
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
need more info. dont see how to get to latch from underneath.
Expert:  Chad replied 3 years ago.
Using the screw driver push the lever I circled towards the drivers side.
You might also be able to get to it from thru the grill.

don,t see latch from bottom, need to know how to get to it.
Expert:  Chad replied 3 years ago.
You might need to loosen the lower panels to see up by the radiator and condenser.I am sorry I can't remember the exact places to remove and exact procedure for this. It had been a few months since I've done one.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
i was looking for a better answer for eighteen dollors. using a long screwdriver was free on google.
Expert:  Chad replied 3 years ago.
Well I apologize that I can not be there in person to show you how to do it. If you give me a few minutes I can look for better way to explain how to get to it.
Expert:  Chad replied 3 years ago.
1.You will need a flashlight, long flat screwdriver, and some patience. Look underneath the center of the grill, find the latch, and pry the latch release at the cable. The hood should pop open.

This is actually the easiest way to do it.

01 chrysler concorde, could not see anything from grille

Expert:  Chad replied 3 years ago.
Ok, I will opt out so maybe someone else has an easier way to help explain how to do this.
Just don't reply to this post.
