Hood/Bonnet won't open

Hi all,

My friend's '96 camry has a bonnet (hood) which won't open. He thinks the cable has snapped and can't find a way to open it. Any suggestions.

Thanks

if you are sure its broken, you can hope it broke at the interior handle side, and not under the hood.

if it broke in the inside of the car, you can find the cable and just pull it with some pliers or something to get it open and fix it. that is if it broke close enough to reach. otherwise....I havent a clue how you would get it open.

Do you hear a clicking sound? Hit it in the exact middle with your fist like a hammer.
