Hello and welcome to just answer .I value your input to my questions so I may help you better. So when you pull the hood release does it feel loose like posably broken?
Thanx for that info, sounds like it might be jammed.before we go further try this. Have someone pull the lever while you press down on the hood and try to release it that way. let me know what happens, spray some WD-40 through the grill at the latch as well.
LOL I like that CPR style. Any way the only other option and the one we do in the shop is to raise the front of the vehicle up safetly so you can remove the plastic under cover .By doing so it will allow you access enough to use a hook and or long screw driver to trigger the latch. also you may be able to see the cable end to pull on that part.After you get it open you may want to replace the cable and I can tell you a secret how to do that as well. Let me know how it goes.
Unfortuneatly that's the last resort, if the cable does break they are not hard to replace ,I can give you a tip how to do that if need be.Can you get a long scewdriver up in there to try and jimmy the lever? the other thing is if you can get to the bolts that hold the latch in place you may be able to remove them allowing you to open it that way.
