Can't open my hood! PLEAE HELP!

I accedentally unhooked my latch to pop the heed open from the cab, now I can't get under the hood.

Has anyone done this before, and know a way to get at the latch with the hood down?

Thanks in advance!

I think he means the cable from the handle in the cab is dissconnected from the latch inder the hood.

If that's the case then get a thin screwdriver or something like that. You'll probably need a flashlight too. Stick it in between the grill and hood and push the latch over with that!! If you can see it.
