Happened once to me, not a broken cable but slightly bent/mis-aligned latch rod thingy. I thought I was screwed, since there is no way to get anywhere near the latching mechanism. I just had someone pull the cable and hold it there while I gave the rear desk a great big bear hug and shook it side-to-side, back and forth, while keeping light upwards pressure. She popped open, which called for another beer to be popped open as well. I later installed a coat hanger wire emergency connection that I can reach even with the muffler still in place.
