If you mean the small black plastic pull for the hood latch broke then you will need to use a screwdriver of long pick you push the latch to the side thats holding the hood down take a flashlight and se how it works . I hope this helps.

Please advise whether I can purchase the rubber pull part at at VW dealer and if this hatch is repairable?. Further, I have to see if I can perform with the answer?

I will have to take some time because I had a hip replace on April 18th, so I move very slow.
