Default Can not open my hood

I pull on my hood release lever from under the dash and it’s very loose. Needless to say I can not open my hood. Does anyone have any tips or tricks on how I can get the hood open before having to dish out major cash at a shop?

A small stick to push on the the latch to the Left(?) should be sufficient to get her open.
Most likely not loose but in need of some white grease though.

it happened to me last year. i ended up jacking up the car, and reached the No.7 Hood control cable protector, and tightened the cable from there. the exploded view can be found on manual DLK-215, leave your email address and I can send them all to you
