    is it really loose? it might just be that the wire came out of the lever

    Re: hood pop broken

    Just reach up from under the front bumper, between the bumper and radiator. Find the end of the cable, which will be hooked into a metal tab on the release. Just push that metal tab, which is normally pretty easy, and it should pop open. If that doesn't work, you're going to have to find the cable above the wheel well, cut the housing, and pull the **** out of the cable with a pair of good pliers.
