I'm still working on that my friend, just no luck So far. But I have not given up. It's a F*** up situation, to open the hood the grille has to come off..and for the grille to come off the hood has to be open...there has GOT to be a way, one fellow broke his grille of with a hammer and bought a new one when the same thing happened, but he was very frustrated with the whole thing and I think he simply lost his temper. but important: I am NOT advising you to do THAT

Is there any way to get to the latch from under the car? GM's are usually open at the bottom. If you can't get to the cable, you may be able to remove the bolts that hold the latch. Another option is to use a hacksaw blade without the frame and cut a opening that can be epoxied back into place.

I was having this problem and i just got my hood open a few minutes ago. All i did was sit on the hood while i was looking fir the solution. When i got off the hood popped up and all i had to do was release the hood. Hope this helps any other buick owners
