You are going to need to try and get to the cable under the dash so you can pull it with vice grips, if you cant get to the inner cable then the work to get the hood open has to occur out at the hood latch. You need to try and go through the grille and remove the latch mounting bolts. Try to go through the holes i n the grille or from under and behind the bumper. In some cases the only way to gain access is to cut a section of the grille out and then replace or repair it later.
