Small 1/4" plastic broke off  my hood release handle, so the cable always falls off.  Instead of buying a new one, here's my instructable to repair it.   You'll need:

- Small screw driver for prying
- Small 18 gage wire, I've stolen some from my daughter's hobby collection.
- Clamps & drills
- Portable light

Step 1: Unhook the release cable

Before crawling under the dashboard, pop open the hood. If the cable  fell off the handle already, grab the wiring 'knob' & pull with pliers.

Open the release cable box, unhook the cable ball.
