Hood cable and hood lever bracket replacement pictures are up (see original post). The area inside the car where the cable hits the firewall is pretty cramped, so sorry about the crappy pictures. I tried doing most of this without taking things out of the way; it just plain didn't work. Take a few minutes to take out the things the things I did in the pictures and you'll save your knuckles plenty of scraping.
