Question stuck hood

What's up community? I'm new to the site but i'd like to ask a question! My 02 s430 was involved in a collision with a deer in dec 2010! In the process of putting it back together i was installing the hood and the hood shocks apparently gave out! My hood then proceded to latch on the drivers side only. This being because i had'nt adjusted the hinges yet. Long story short i cant get the hood to release with the cable. Any suggestions?

hood

pull the left front wheel and inner liner, then u will see the cable hooked up to a rectangular shape box, u can unclip it and then u can pull on the release. its simple once u see that box, its probably half inch thick by two and a half long. hope this helps
