bonnet cable snapped


i have a 190 2.6, and the bonnet cable has snapped. have bought a new one, but dont know how to open the bonnet. the cable has snapped at the bonnet end, not by the lever in the passenger footwell. my only option i can see, is to drill a hole into the grill, and get a welding rod and try try and fish out the cable, but if anyone has any ideas, im all ears.

Have you tried asking on the W201 forum? You'll find those owners under the sedans section.
