      Unfortunately there is no easy process to open a stuck hood. You could removed the passenger kidney grill and with a long needle nose pliers pull on the latch cable. If that doesn't work, you will need to cut hood latch pins on both sides. Hope that helps.

      The cable has the slug attached on the end so no, that wont go thru the old cable housing.

      Unfortunately, this is one of those DIY tasks where you have to removed parts mentioned to accurately insert the wire correctly.
