I was having trouble with my hood staying down, upon further investigation i noticed my hood release cable has started to rust. as preventative maintenance i want to get this replaced before the cable has the opportunity to snap (that could get ugly
). I already have the two bowden cables (shown in green) - one between the two latches (latches shown in red) and the other that runs up the drivers side of the engine bay.
I was hoping that the replacement would be simple, but it isn't looking that way. I'm actually not too sure how to go about doing this. the middle cable seems to run under the front bay support, with tons of intake plastic in the way and between the radiator. has anyone done this before? any advice?
id hate to remove the bumper and all the front intake components, or even the radiator to find out there was a simpler way.
