is there a cable that remains where it broke off from the leaver? because on Government Motors vehicles (General Motors, GM) the hood release leaver ALWAYS breaks. then you have to just take a pair of needle nose pliers and pull on the cable to get it to release. that should be all you have to do.

This happened to me...to make a long story short hood got closed while the cable was broken. What I did was get under the front of the car and stick my arm all the way up to the latch with a screw driver and unlatch it. It is NOT easy.
