Answers :

You can see the release assembly through the grill, look for the actuating lever. A long screw driver may be able to push it in the direction of release, i.e. towards the left side of the car, (except in the UK?) Or you may be able to loop a stout cord around it and feed it sufficiently over (or downwards) to pull the release. Make sure the catch assembly is well lubed and not sticking before you close it again, or you may start all over. Also: make a wire hook, (I suspect that coat hanger wire would work for this), and to insert it through the grille, snagging the rear of the lock mechanism, and pulling it towards the driver's side. Might be worth taking a look at now, while the cable is intact, against the moment it freezes or snaps or otherwise fails... To do this it takes some imagination because there are many different ways to perform this action. Sometimes you can retrieve the activation cable through the front grill while other times the only way to activate the hood release is to gain access to the latch from underneath the vehicle
