Maybe try to have someone hold the lever pulled while another tries to pull up on the hood.

@enigma-2  ours isn't similar to that.

 

The grill badge and camera are directly in front of the latch and it cannot be seen even using a flashlight.

 

The attached photos will give you an idea where to prod with a long screwdriver - I was able to get it open, but had the benefit of seeing the exact location of the latch.

 

One of those inspection cameras would help a lot.

What did you find? Cable broken or connection at the latch or plastic pull handle?
