HELP: hood won't open

I have an 07 335i and the the latch on the drivers side pops open when you press the latch on the inside but the passenger side is either seized or not engaging. I have removed the passenger side kidney grill, still not access to the latch, please someone help me out. Thanks in advance.

Can you have someone pull up while you're pulling the latch? It's possible the spring broke or the adjustments are off and it's not allowing it to pop up on its own.

Tried that too. And nothing. Does anyone know what the easiest way is to access the the passengers side latch/open it without breaking anything. I have the kidney grill removed.
