Subject: hood release
The hood release cable end under the dash has a plastic tip. This tip
will break. Tip trips releases one of 2 catches. Once broken, the
passenger side catch does not release. My mechanic got a very long screw
driver which he inserted thru the grill and pressed on the catch thus
releasing it manually. Once open, repair is simple just install a u
bolt at the end of the cable in place of the plastic tip.
Look at a friend's audi or go to dealer used car lot and open the hood to
see the hood release setup. Then go to with a long long screwdriver or
appropriate substitue. Good Luck It works on 5000 expect it will also
work on the 89 100 George K.
