I found this great link on Mid-America's website with detailed instructions and pictures for popping the hood on a C3 when the latch breaks or just won't work.

There have been a few threads on this topic but none with pictures. I already printed it and filed it away hoping to never have to use it. If I had this a few months back, it would have saved my neighbor and me a lot of trouble w/ his 72(78 front clip).

That won't work for a 74 either, best advice I can give you is run some picture wire to the release and tuck it a away in the wiper area or down the fender just in case! PG.
