Here is a very thorough writeup. Read through the entire thing ... he covers how to replace the cable, and several ways to get your hood open when the cable is broken. Lots of good pics too.

In short, you can reach up .... he shows a pic. If your arms aren't skinny enough, you need to take out your headlights.

Hope this helps.
