Hello, I'm Cam. Please include all the details about your issue so I can accurately advise you. I cannot see your vehicle so please be detailed.Did it break at the handle itself?
No the handle did not break it did come away from the sidewall inside the vehicle , but the cable will not unlatch the hood.
Ok, then a long tool with a stiff hook, often you cna reach in through the grille to manualy release hood.
Can you see through the grill say with a flashlight to get to the release and could you suggest a tool to use ? thanx i am in auto tech school so i have some automotive knowledge.
Usually, I use a long rad hose hook to grab the end. If not then you may need to go from the bottom and cut the old cable then pull it.
