The hood release handle is not working,is there another way to open hood on 1998 Mercedes-Benz ML320

The hood release handle appears to be connected in the vehicle,so it must be disconnected at the hood latch.Is there another way to open the hood other than with the handle.

TO AVOID DAMAGE, SUGGEST LETTING A MECHANIC CHECK IT FOR YOU.
