"HELP" Broken Hood Cable-Need to Open It

Hello and thanks. I have a 2000 Chev. S-10 and the hood latch is broke on the inside. Any advice for opening the hood from the outside and making the repair will be greatly appreciated. Have a great day.

If you can reach through the grill with a pair of pliers then you MIGHT be able to grab the latch that way and tug it away. I know it works on older cars, but not sure about the 2k S-10.

Long needle nosed work best.

........ if you can grab the cable either under the dash or thru the grille and pull, that will open it also.
