951 Hood Release Latch

Cables and Controls

Vehicle Information: Model(924/944/968): 944 turbo; Year: 1987; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 97,000;

My hood release cable broke on the latch side, and I am trying to hit the release from the underside. I am having difficulty reaching it and getting it to pop. The main obstructions seem to be the turbo air box and the turbo water pipe, with the headlight bar above them. Should I be trying to hit the latch by going between the air box and the water pipe (very tight), or between the water pipe and the radiator shroud (more room, but too far forward to go behind the headlight bar)? Also, would having a bend in the screwdriver help me reach better?
