Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here. In most cases if the handle breaks off you are going to need to replace the cable assembly. I have enclosed the steps to do this along with the steps to get the hood open with a bad cable.
