Cool, and she picked a nice one...

With the inner lever "released," and the hood partly popped up, she
should slide her hand under the front lip form just left of center until
she hits a metal hooking device.  Pushing that to her right, while not
pulling up hard on the lid, will unhook it.  Then she can lift the hood.

And in other news.... all salient info snipped...

Forgive me, and I feel for your daughters bad day, but she was not
victimized, she was lucky.  She lost her pocketbook and got it back.
Not that that lets the schmuck who messed with its contents off the
hook... he or she is still a nasty piece of work...

Anyway, a hearty welcome to you and to her joining "the Audi 
experience!"  Is her 90 a quattro or front wheel drive?  You might want 
to suggest she join the list while she gets to know her new car.

Oh, yes, what color is it?
