2008 S60, broken hood cable

Post by gerstetj » Sat Sep 21, 2019 4:24 pm

I have yet to find a thread that directly addresses a broken hood release that is in the engine compartment. How does one go about getting the hood latches to release? Do I need to take off the radiator, front bumper, grill....?
What a design.

Did the ball end pop off at the pull lever?

Or did the plastic on the pull lever crack, rendering the pull cable & lever useless?

Yes, hell of a design. Easily fixable though, just time consuming. $36 for new cable, ~$7ish for a new pull lever if yours broke.
