Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you. If the hood release cable is broken, the only way to open the hood is to remove the hood latch unit from the center radiator support metal panel. This is not easy if you do not have access to a lift and swivel 10 millimeter sockets. Please allow me to ask if there is any resistance felt when you pull on the hood release cable.

Sorry. The hood latch is operated via the cable and the cable only. This is part of the anti-theft system (so no one can steal your battery). A positive rating would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
