EXT: Re-wiring Hood latch Cable (inside car)

After getting my car broken into and seeing how easy it was to get in by pulling on the hood cable under the fender liner I decided to re-wire this so it goes from the lever, threw the firewall, around the engine pay to the hood latch.

Tools Needed
10mm socket
Wrench/ Extender.
Phillips Screw Driver


1. First You will need to remove the front grill. There is I belive 5 screws holding it in place. After taking those screwes off you will need to push the grill forward so it can pop out of the clips. Once grill is off proceed to step 2.

2. Next you will need to take the 3 10mm bolts off the hood latch. Once those bolts are taken off the hood latch should be free from the car. This is where you take off the end of the cable out of the unit. Once wire is out continue to step 3.


3. Then you will need to get into the car take pop off the plastic peice around the hood latch unit on the drivers side as pictured below. Once that is off you will see 2 10mm bolts holding that to the ride. Once those are off you will need to take this end of the wire out of the housing it's in.


Now both ends of the cable should be free and not connected to anything.

4. This is the tricky part. You will need to reach under the fender lining and grab the hood cable. You will need to pull it all the way through. There are clips on the support frame that are holding it in. Just push them down and they will come out. Or just keep yanking on it. Once you have the wire all the way out from the fender you will need to lift up the wheel well lining and follow the wire to where it goes into the car. You will need to remove the grommet looking thing as pictured below.


Once this peice is gone you will then need to proceed to step 5.

5. Next you will get back into the car and pull that wire in to the inside of the car. You should be able to get the whole wire out like the picture below.

You just accomplished removing your hood latch wire. Drink a beer.

Re-installing the wire the new way..

1. Go to the firewall from the outside of the car and look for the grommet that's pictured. Cut a small hole in this to feed the wire thru to get inside the car. Like so...


2. Once you have about a foot and a half of the cable stop. This is where your going to put the cable around the clutch area to the side of the fuse box as pictured below. In the car connect the cable to the hood latch inside the car. Then use the 2 10mm bolts and tighten them.

Go outside the car and take the cable and try to tuck/hide it around everything to make it a clean install/look. Like picured.




Once you get it back to the front of the car connect it back to the hood latch and bolt that up using the 3 10mm bolts. Then install the grill the same way you took it off. Before putting grill on test everything to make sure the hood opens and closes and your good to go.


You have offically rewired your hood latch cable through your engine bay. Feel good about what you did to prevent theives from stealing your shit.

Yes I rushed and did a bad install. From them doing it and the age of the cable it's been broken but I am ordering a new cable and I will make sure everything is right then!


Thank you for reading this. Pm me any info you need etc

-Wayne

most come with directions. i have the dei back up battery. basically it just goes inline with the 12v wire leading to your alarm. snip your alarms power wire and connect it from 12v to the red wire on the backup battery then run gray to your alarms 12v input. ground the black wire on the backup battery. and finnally there is an instant trigger output which is blue and if you have a dei alarm it goes to the blue instant trigger/trunk trigger input.

Its good to see you made something productive out of what happened to your car. Even better that you shared it with everyone so they can avoid the same happening to them. Nice job maple.
