How to open the hood of a 1989 cadillac deville

The lever to open the hood of my 1989 Deville is broke. Is there another way to open the hood?

Climb under the car from the front. If the handle itself is broken the rod might still be in place. Grab it and push up. Presto, open hood. If the rod is also missing, just reach straight up from the handle about as far as your arm can reach. Push on the latch and... Chango. Sometimes it's easier to open it at the latch pushing with a screwdriver.

Can ya tell I've worked on more than my share of these?
