Well im not familar with this car exactly, but there are a couple ways
to try it. 1st (i am assumeing it is a manual pull, not an electric
button) hold the caseing of the wire and pull on the wire. if that
doesnt work, you are gonna have to silde something under the hood and
manually unlach the hood (which will be a pain in the @$$)

You can't reach the cable from under the car. The only way I ever found to
the cable or latch on a Contour\Mystique was to cut out a section of the plastic
grille to the left of the grille emblem (to the right on the outside of the
slice open the cable near the latch. You then pull the cable to release the
cable seems to break about midway between the handle and latch. IIRC you can cut
small section out on both sides of the emblem and unbolt the entire latch, but I
be positive. Look close with a flashlight.
If this seems extreme, remember: The inside hood release is a theft
was easy for you, it would be easier for a thief.
