    Don't panic it's just handle it self is broken
    Probably the cable that is hook up to the knob hood release
    Came out.
    You can pull that plastic cover or grab a flat head to help you pop it out
    And see if the cable came out if do use a plier to pull the cable out
    Hood should open
