not a big deal. just grab ahold of the cable where the hood release was and pull it hard. the hood will open. If you cant see it, just remove the lower panel. its there.
to replace the release, it is a breeze. it is held onto the lower panel by one screw. sometimes the hard part is getting the cable into the piece. When I do them, I close the hood, and then grab ahold of the cable and pull it hard, the hood will pop open, but dont let go of the cable. then route it into the release piece. then screw it into place.
