Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** removing the handle inside the car from it's mounting bracket then pull on the cable and handle until it releases the hood. It will help if you have a helper pushing down on the hood while you are pulling on the cable. You remove the handle from the bracket so you can get more pull on the cable.
Let me know if it works.
