best to confirm, i have had the bowden cable break at the lever on the inside of the car, but if cable has completely snapped and it is confirmed, easiest way i have done it is by destroying one of the kidney grilles and operating the latch.

i have seen others removing radiators and such from underneath, but you could be spending countless hours any other way
