Jeffrey, I don't know if it is of any value to you since I have an 5K,
but maybe the design of hood lock is similar. My hood cable broke under
the hood. There are two metal hooks that need to be pulled to open the
hood. I was able to do this with a wire working throuh the grille. I
knew one can learn new things working on the Audi, but I never expected
burglary is one of them! :-)
