Geez... this is like the twilight zone... My hood cable and e-brake cable 
broke on me this past weekend too!
WRT to hood cable... Mine was fortunate enough to brake near the handle. 
So I cut back the black housing until I found new cable, put on a pair of 
vice grips and yanked. It opened, at which point I put in the new cable. 
It took all of 10 minutes.
If it didnt break where you can do this, take a long screwdriver, poke it 
through the grill and manually push over the releases. I had to do this 
once I put in the new cable, it was adjusted wrong! Argh!
