Kia Troubleshooting Questions? Ask a Mechanic
Greetings and welcome to JA!You wont be able to accsee the cable without breaking something, but there is something you can try. Grab a bathroom towl and lay it across the front of the hood. Then using your hands press down firmly and sharply several times. While you are doing that have an assistant gently pull the hood release lever in and out. This will help it break free. But please use caution as to much force pulling the lever can break it.
