    Hood release cable

    The factory cable finally snapped making it difficult to open the hood. Purchased this cable as a replacement at half the cost of the factory cable. The hardest part of the install is routing the new cable through the firewall but can be accomplished with a little patience. Overall the new cable does its job well - no more sliding under the front bumper to manually reach in and pop the hood latch.

    Hood release cable, OEM quality at a much better price.

    Side by side you can't tell the difference from the OEM cable. (Except that the old one was broken.) Easy install. I always hook a wire on the exterior end of the old cable and pull it through the firewall. Just hook new cable onto the wire and pull it back through. Time saver. !988 McLaren Convertible

    Very nice quality

    After pulling my hood cable open with vice grips this was the perfect item to clean up my interior and put the vice grip away. Make sure to attach the new cable to the old cable with electrical tape. It makes fishing the cable through the firewall super easy

    The product was an exact replacement for the OEM cable. It installed relatively easy and works fine.

    Great Product

    I ordered this cable assembly for my 1989 LX. My dad and I removed the old one and replaced the new one in about ten minutes. It was easy to install, and is built well. After ordering this, I had it at my shop in about three days.
