Hood latch cable replacement.

402 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  1GODZILLA1
I have a 2003 Ford Excursion and while working on a turn signal issue I tried to pop the hood and nothing, I finally got the hood opened after unbolting the hood latch. The cable is broken and I have a new one on the way.
I searched to see if there was online instructions but could not find any.
I am really having trouble with the connector at the hood latch, how do you compress the teeth that hold it in place to get the old cable out and new one in?
Thanks. :cautious:

Needle nose pliers to squeeze them, and while doing that, wiggle the cable out of the latch. Once that's out then you should be able to unhook the cable.
