Re: 88 90Q stuck hood cable

It's easier to get at without the grill in front.  If there's no way to
get it off without breaking it is very challenging.  Use a coat hanger and
make a hook.  There are 2 latches for the hood and you need to hook one
side at a time to open the hood.  This has happened to me before and
instead of using the plastic tabs to hold the front grill in, I used cable
ties which I can easily cut off to take the grill off.  With the grill off
a screwdriver works.

Anyone got a low mile NG engine?
