broken hood latch on a 1992 chevy astro van

How can I open the hood on a '92 chevy astro van if the hood latch is not working? I can pull the inside hood release handle but nothing happens.

Lightbulb can you reach it with hand or tool?

on some cars/vans you can reach up from under vehicle to grab hood latch cable (or hood latch unit if cable is broken) and disengage. you may need a flashlight and it would help, especially if the cable is broken, to know exactly which direction to move unit to disengage. youmay need to use some type of tool to reach desired location. there are many vehicles where this may not work. good luck. glennj69
