Can't pop hood

You should be able to access the mechanism from the under side of the car - reaching up to pop the release where the wire has dislodged. At least that's how a shop handled it when my (previous) V8 had a wire break...
You may have to get the car up in the air for this maneuver...

 I can't pop the hood on my 89 Audi 100 Quattro. I went to pop it the
other day and it seems the cable broke. Any suggestions on an easy way
to get the thing open without a can opener?
