hood won't open

Hi , after using the search button , I didn't find my problem so here it goes

My hood won't open. Yesterday I change my hood for a jobber, check if there is anything wrong with the fitment and it doesn't seem like. I close it , if fit almost perfectly but now it doesn't want to open ...

Even if I pull as hard as I can on the latch inside... it doesn't do anything. If there any ways I can open the hood from a different manner ?

All tread I saw was about hood that doesn't close, mine doesn't want to open

Speed is money , How fast do you wanna go ?

try having someone pull the release and push down and up on the hood and try to get it free and then if you do get it open then make sure you adjust it before you shut it again.
