[urq] Rear Lid Latch Release

Actuallly, I'd worry more about the lower lift strut mount on the body
getting worked from a lot of use. I have seen a broken one. The captured nut
breaks inside the unreachable part of the car. When you open the lid, don't
let it swing hard up to the end of the travel of the strut as that seems to
be the most tension. Watch the bottom mount next time you open it and you'll
see the car body flex a bit. I just discovered on Saturday that the right
side was loose on mine. Luckily, the nut hadn't broken yet and I was able to
tighten it.

Not sure about the cable breakage question.
