This on your '00???

If so, I'll grab my digicam and take some pictures of the mechanism for you so you can try to see of a way to pop it without the cable. Shouldn't be all that difficult, just takes knowing where to put the screwdriver. I'll also take a look at the routing of the cable to see if it drops low enough anywhere so you can try to get it there.

Yea, the '00.
Thanks!!

I already popped teh kick plate to see if I could grab it behind the panel. However it goes inside of a plastic sleeve. Seems to be a bolt holding the end of the sleeve in place, didn't have much time to fart around with it this morning, had to get to work.

Damn man. Things kept on popping up last night. Heres a pretty good shot sorta from the back side of the latch. If you need anything else, let me know. I know that things are awful tight in there...

Thanks for the pic.
He broke it off in the cab. I ended up unbolting the cable, then using my pocket knive to slice off the protective outer cover. It has steal reinforcement wires in it, had to cut those with some wire snipes. Then there is another protective cover, managed to pull the cable out and pop the hood using pliers. Wonder how much a new cable costs?

What a pain in the butt. Hoperfully I can reattach the cable, hopefully it has enough lenght to it. IF not time for a new one.

Hanr3, They are pretty cheap, I usually use the old one, tape it to the new one in the cab then gently pull it through the firewall.

Dennis, the spring is to pull the cable back into the latch assy after you pull the handle in the cab. Basically to pull up the slack.

Well, Tim (hanr3) had this problem a very long time ago and has since fixed it. I do believe that he did replace the entire cable.

And Kordog's description of the function of the spring is spot on as always.

This must be a common thing. Mine happened to break when I got the hose hole. Had to use pliers in the cab to pull the wire.
