I would take off the kick panel in the driver footwell. Once off, you can remove the plastic lever to release the Hood latch. Next, try pulling on the hood release cable with pliers. Sometimes the cables gets stuck and needs extra effort to open the hood. Once you get the hood open, follow the cable, somewhere along it, there is a "door" you can open and lube the cable. Spray some WD-40 in there.

Hopefully this will help you. I had similar issues in the past.

Cheers!
