Bonnet Release Cable Rear

Postby tinkythomas » Sat Oct 12, 2019 9:02 pm

Hi, had my bonnet release cable snap at the lever in the footwell. Ordered a replacement cable and taped a fish wire to the old cable and pulled through bulkhead to the coupler at the headlight.

Taped the new cable to the fish wire and tried to pull through grommet in bulkhead but it got stuck and unfortunately the fish wire pulled off! Now I'm stuck trying to figure out how I'm going to get the new cable through the grommet!?

I took out the fender liner and can see the grommet through the tiniest of holes but I can't get my hand to it to push the cable through! Anyone attempted this before and have any tips?
