Hood Wont Open

This morning I went to open the hood on my 97 but it wouldnt go. I tried moving the hood and lever in every way possible. Is it possible to take the torque screws off the hinges the are attached to the hood and then pul it off from there?

Thanks,
Ben

You still have to get the front unlatched if you pull the hinge screws... Don't do it!
Grab the front hood latch with pliers (after you lift the hood up a little) and pull towards yourself... That should release the hood latch and allow you to lift the hood.
