if you ever break your hood release handle, here ya go!

This past weekend I went to open the hood and low and behold the release handle snapped. At first I thought it was the cable, but its the lower open end piece on the cable retainer built into the handle itself. Unfortunately you can't just purchase a new handle(suppose you could get one from a JY) so i had to buy a new cable/handle assembly. When i recieved the cable assembly i noticed the cable had squeeze connect fittings and the cable end slips into the handle. So all i had to do is remove the trim, remove the 3 bolts holding the handle to the body, release the cable from the old one and slide the old cable into the new handle. Waalaa! Now I have an extra cable should the original ever break. Just in case anybody ever breaks their handle, hope this helps.
Broken piece

Replacement
