You can either reach it from the bottom with your hand, it won't be easy, or a longer screwdriver fromthe front through the grill. There is a small latch at the bottom of the hood latch itself. Once you pop that it should open the regular way.

I have a 2003 Hyundai Sante Fe with a detached or broken cable, I don't see any small latch in this vehicle. Is there something else I can do
