Friday night i went to pull the lever inside my car ('85 190e)that releases the hood and nothing happened. There was no tension on the lever and it went all the way back without popping the hood. I took out the screw that holds the lever in place and saw a large black cable with a smaller silver cord inside. I pulled the silver cord thinking thats what would pop the hood. Nothing happened and now i have 2 feet of extra silver cord out. I priced a new cable on the fastlane here for $15. Is that all i will need to get my hood open again? Does anyone know how exactly to replace the cable?
