Finally I've succeeded to open the hood. For the RHD e65's, the latches are the other way around. For the latch on the left you have to pull the cable from left to right and the same for the one on the right. The problem with mine was the bracket inside. The housing of the cable got through that plastic of the bracket and it wasn't making any tension while pulling the lever. All the cables were in good shape but I've decided to change the whole system except for the latches as I don't want to go through this again.
Thank you again Keif for the pictures.
