Hood Release Cables

This should have been a straight forward 30-minute task, but it ended up taking quite a bit longer. The manual doesn’t have you mount the handle to the supplied bracket aluminum until you run the cables. In reality, it is much easier to mount the handle first, then run the cables. It also took a while to figure out how to use the bracket, as it is not pictured in the manual and they do not tell you where to  mount it or how to use it.  I ended up mounting it in the corner by the door hinge, putting it well out of the way of everything. To use the bracket you need to bend the ‘tabs’ back, and then press the handle onto them. Once the cables were ran, it took a while to figure out how to clamp them out of the way without the hood latches being pulled open too much by the tightened cables.
