I have a 1984 BMW 318i and the hood release cable has broken off the hood latch. How can I get the hood open? I have removed all three front grills but the is a metal piece that runs along the front and top of the radiator and I still can't see the release. I believe there are actually two latches one on each side. I have only opened the hood one time before the cable broke and I don't really recall there being two releases, but that is kind of what it looks like. Please help me out wit finding them and how I can get into them to actually make them release. Please and Thank you !

Take out the headlights. The system is designed to keep poeple out so you have to do a lot of parts removal to get in. LUBRICATE EVERYTHING as you replace the cable..
