Hi all
Sorry if this is a stupid noob question...

How do you remove the hood release lever and assembly from the dash to replace the cable?

Cable is too short and has been butchered by the PO and I want to replace it.
My workshop manual has failed me again with no mention of it at all withing its 800 pages.

I can actually see two screws that hold it in but how do you get to them and how does the cable fix to the handle?

TIA

Never mind guys, I got creative and managed to lengthen inner part of the cable and the sheath was just long enough.
Cheers

I replaced the one in my 1960 Saratoga...... with a generic cable assembly bought at the auto parts store, which was several feet longer than needed. SO I just removed the new cable from the sheath it came in and used it. The issue was getting the old cable out of the handle, and I can't remember how I got it out.....but once out, silver-soldered the new one into the handle.

There should be an angled receiver on the under dash side, then a large nut that screws onto the threaded shaft. Yours has been modified with the two screws.

The bowden cable is fixed to the handle and is not ment to be serviced. Ian's method seems to be a good idea.

Here's my suggestion with two allen screws - seems like many more had the same idea….
