Hood Latch

I have a 2006 Hyundia Accent and the hood latch has stopped working. Cable might be broken. Is there anyway I can get the hood open without causing damage?

You may have to take it to some one, that knows what they are doing, and has the tools to do it. When the cable broke on my Cavalier, I tried for a few hours. I took it to the shop, and they had it open, in less then a minute, once it was up on the lift.

I've seen them get stuck and some oil do the trick if you can manage to get it in there. That said, a broken cable is not going to respond to oil
