    Ok how is that possible? Looking at the rubber/plastic housing around the cable, I'm not sure I can attach one to the other. If I could do that...OMFG that would save a HUGE amount of time from having to remove just about everything on the left side of the car.

    You have to replace the rubber housing as well. I think I just tied mine together and used a zip tie to keep it tied. The only trouble spot is when you go through the firewall. I pulled the old one out the front, thus feeding the new from the rear of the car towards the front. Go kinda slow cause it will get caught up but no major deal, just see where its caught and proceed. Should probably take 1 hour max from start to finish.

    That's what I thought. However, how did you deal with the areas where the hood release cable is clipped down? It runs over the radiator, down under the battery tray, under the window washer etc, and then through the firewall and under the carpet.

    I don't think I fastened it down and wasn't worried about that being an issue.

    I just ran it underneath various hoses and cables to keep it tied down. Doesn't really matter.
