Hood won't open

The hood on my 99 F250 is stuck all the way down. I can see the cable moving inside the latch. How can I get the hood to pop up so I can open it?

I have tried hittin down on it while someone pulls the lever...I even tried prying up on it...I have some clear liquid leaking down the motor and I can't figure out what it is...it's not fuel...It smells like musty water.

I can't remember how those latches work or if they are even different than the OBS ones. try slipping a screwdriver in there and see if you can slide the latch over

You might just have to cut the grill so you can get in there and move the latch
