I bought a 1996 Honda Civic EX.
The plastic latch to pop the hood was broke off, but I was still able to pull the cable with pliers.

I was thinking to get a new Cable release handle from a scrapyard but what if it break again...
So i decided to make one that would not break somehow.

Step 1:

This was my solution to the problem. A T-Handle Tap Wrench.

Step 2:

To install it simply remove some plastic at the tip of the handle cable.

Step 3:

Cut the T-Handle Tap Wrench handle to the length you want. I use a dremel to cut the handle.

Step 4:

Insert the T-Handle Tap Wrench on the tip of the cable handle and tight the T-Handle Tap Wrench around it.
That's all there is to it, simple and solid.
<p>This is exactly the kind of solution I was looking for. Thank you. Will try it out next week &amp; report back.</p>
Ha thats a great idea<br>I had the same problem but i would just keep one of my football gloves near it and put it on for extra gip and pull<br>Its very easy
<p>Great idea. We have the same problem with our Civic. Keep a small pliers in there for now, but definitely going to use this great solution you came up with! Thank you</p>
