Hi guys,

I am new around here and unfortunately I need your help. My hood cable just snapped and I can't open the hood. I've tried Kief's (Thanks Keif for the DIY) procedure but I was unable to locate the latches.
Are there 2 latches, one for each side?
Are there any differences between LHD and RHD cars?
Can any of you help me with a picture (see attach) with the hood open so I can see where are the latches?
