      Have someone press down firmly just above the latch, and someone inside to pull the cable. (If cable hasn't already broken from hood latch)

    EXCELLENT video, thank you.
    My '07 Magnum has a seized hood release cable. I have removed the headlites before, so this should be an easy repair.

    I have an 08 charger r/t. I simply disconnected the cord from the latch and connected it to about 8’ of welding wire. From there, I pulled the cord off the 3 locating clips. Then inside the car, I removed the handle as shown and pulled the entire cord through the firewall. Disconnect the old cord and put the new one on the wire that was also pulled through. Then pull from the engine side to have the new cable follow the path of the old one.
    This avoids having to remove the bumper, wheel well, and wheel.
    Good luck.
