Sadly mine is not broken from the inside the car. I took it apart like Keif's post says and the cable looks fine as well as the cable sleeve. The handle and mechanism is in great shape as well. I did take the cable out of the mechanism and pulled it with a pair of pliers. It glided smoothly, but did not pop the hood. I think that it is bad under the hood where it goes bad like in Keif's post. Taking it to Indy next week.
