    Can you grab the inner cable inside the car with a small vise grips? If not it is difficult. You would need a second Honda like yours, look at where and how the cable pulls the lock and then use a coat hanger in a similar way to breaking into a car.

    Okay, the cable has come all the way out from under the hood
