Q: My hood release cable is broken. Is there a way to get my hood open? on 1997 BMW 740iL

The cable appears to be attached to the release handle but when I pull nothing happens. I have taken of the grills, I can get the passenger side to release but the driver side will not release. If you can give me any advice I would appreciate it. Also any diagrams, that I could use for visual aids would be extremely helpful.
