Lever inside does not have cable attached and the pull lever that usally sticks out the front of hood is under hood and I cant reach. How do I get the hood open?

Cable broke and the front lever unreachable-you gonna have to find a way -you probably have to remove some components on the front to get to the latch or cable to unlatch it-Don't want you waiting this question is not easy-one way or the other it can be done to open it up with good thinking, time and patience-Sorry

Try to disassemble the attaching parts inside the car (see picture below)
then try grabbing the cable (inside the sleeve) with a pair of pliers and giving them a good.

Otherwise, whatever else works.

You will have to pull the trim and access the cable and using pliers pull the cable, order a new one so you can replace it at the same time.
