you should be able to see up under the bumper and behind the grill. you should be able to see where the cable goes to the latch. I had this happen on a 91 chevy, I was able to make a hook out of stiff wire and pull on the cable right where it goes into the latch and release it. this is a bugger to do everytime, so you may want to replace the cable from the inside of the car to the latch.
