Since the hood release is purely mechanical and this question has nothing to do with VCDS, moving to General VW/Audi Repair.

Hello,

This is a long shot, but.......... I would lift and support the left front of the vehicle, just enough to remove the left front wheel.
- Then, I would remove the left wheel/fender liner to gain access to the hood cable that is routed on/near the "Upper Wheel Housing Longitudinal Member". Where the fender is bolted to.

You maybe able pull the cable from this point, that is if the cable has not been compromised near the latch.

Hope this help,

drpeter
