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?
