Can you find any part of the cable to pull onto with some pliers? Under the dash? If not, perhaps by getting underneath the front end and working upwards you can trace the cable and intervene from there.

Thanks for the reply, I previously did try under dash at the release, there are two cables, the left side is broken at the latch under hood and is very to get to from up top or by the battery.
