    Comments about Dorman - OE Solutions Hood Release Cable With Handle:

    Dorman does a great job on OE hard to find parts. The replacement was identical to the original and fit exactly same. Advance beat the other guys price by a good margin on this Cherokee part. When I looked for the same part for a Buick the other guys had it in stock and beat Advance price. Pays to shop a little.

        A:

        Kindly follow the instructions to Dorman - OE Solutions Hood Release Cable with Handle - Part No. 912-002 : Lift the hood. Remove the hood release cable at the hood latch using the needle-nose pliers. Grab the round ball on the end of the cable in the latch, and lift it up and out of the retainer spring. Remove the screw holding the cable to the latch. Pull the cable from behind the headlight and guide it with your hand until it is out past the headlight. At this point, the loose end just pulled out should all be on the engine side of the radiator. Remove the hood release handle by removing the bolts with the appropriate socket. Push the rubber grommet through the firewall below the brake booster using the screwdriver. Pull the cable from inside the vehicle by grasping it as high as possible toward the firewall. Install the new cable by inserting the latch end through the firewall and feeding enough through to grab from the other side. If you can not find the hole (it is hidden in many cases), insert the long screwdriver from the other side and then follow it up to the hole. Pull the cable from the engine side until it stops, which is where the rubber grommet is that fills the hole the cable came through. Install the rubber grommet inside by pushing it in the firewall. If this is difficult, use the screwdriver to assist you. Pull the cable along the fender well, routing it in the same manner in which it came out. Push it through the hole at the headlight and under the radiator support. Install the cable to the latch by installing the cable end first into its spring lock. Put the cable into the cable hold-down bracket. Tighten the hold-down bracket. Bolt the release handle on, making sure the bolts are tight.

        A:

        It should be a fairly simple job to do and depending on how you approach it shouldn't take you very long.
