Hello all!

Was changing out the brakes last weekend on my 2015.5 and went to release the hood from the driver side interior pull, and it broke or detached. That is, the cable is still attached to the interior handle and you can see the cable being pulled, but the line either broke more toward the engine or became disconnected.

Has anyone for a good way back into the hood to fix/repair so that I can get in there and take care of an oil leak?

Thanks all!

My 2012 Has this funny little quirk where it'll only pop the left side of the hood. I shove the narrow rectangular shop vac extension in there and pop the hood again. Opens right up every time!

If it broke at the handle or under the dash, get a pair of visegrip, attach to the cable and yank it. Then you need to replace the cable.
