The hood latch is at the forward edge of the hood; just inboard of the inboard headlight on the left side of the car. You can gain access by removing the small section of grill on that side. The latch is at the top of the opening exposed by the grill; just under the lip of the hood. You can get it to release by pushing the latch inboard with the blade of a large screwdriver.
