Unhappy Hood Won't Release

Uh boy..I done it now...grin, before you think its a standard cable broke one please read on....I removed the hood latches to clean and paint, upon reassembly I tested them and locked down the drivers side with a screw driver and pulled the release cable..all worked well but the actuating lever felt a bit stiff so I loosened off the bottom bolts and re tightened so the lever moves freely, I shut the hood and here is the oh no...the lever moves but it does not open the latch no matter how hard I pull...I think it is out of adjustment and missing the lever it triggers to open, other than cutting a hole in my wheel well to unbolt the latch is there anything else I can do, I have been pushing on the actuater with a screw driver through the emergency hole in the wheel well but no luck, the passenger side is not locked so i can see the mechanism but of course can't reach it
