LOL im completely baffled, went out to look at my car and obviously i can see where the hood release goes through the fiewall, but there is so much padding im ASSUMING it goes through the firewall...tracing back from the hood latch, once it gets to the fender basically it "dissapears" under near the battery, so there is a huge maybe 3 foot "unknown lenght". i really appreciate the pictures, but i cant see exactly where you mean....maybe someone else can interprete??
OMG i found it!....on the outside at least, its a bit hard to see with the wheel on, but if you put your hand up you can FEEL the cable and the gromet
YOUR A GENIUS 514 !!!!!!!
