If the end of the cable is visible you can pull it with a vise grips. If not, here's a pic of my 900SE. If it's similar, you could try getting something with a bent tip into the oval area. Could try a coat hanger, not sure it's strong enough. When that is pushed to the right, the hood is released. Front of the car is to the right in the pic. There's some room between the grill and the rubber lining attached to the hood. It's just about 8" in from the grill, dead center. But you need to get by the spring/rod that goes into the round hole. So you need to go in from the left or right side and push or pull toward the driver's side. You'll need something about 13" long or more. I haven't done it so good luck. Otherwise, you could always bring it to a body shop. I tried to figure this out before just in case. I may add an additional "emergency" cable but for now I just keep it lubricated.
