2000 chevy blazer hood wont open

Ok I have had everything tried. Pulling the cable from the inside with pliers, pulling it from under the hood with pliers, banging on the hood and pulling, cutting the hood release cable to pull the wire wd40 in case it just needed alittle grease and there is no way to open the grill without the hood being open. Now Pepe Boys wants to charge me about $400 to install the hood release cable, that's not counting the time it will take to open the hood so I don't like being screwed so how can I open my hood. Oh I also tried the making a hook out of a metal coat hanger and reaching the latch that way but nada.

  • Have you tried swearing at it and kicking it?
    In all seriousness, try posting a question in Yahoo Answers. There seem to be quite a few mechanics there who seem to know what they are talking about. One of them diagnosed my van's steering problem that the local shop was clueless about. GL Momma!
