Q: The release for the hood inside my Honda Element snaped,broke off. on 2003 Honda Element

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
The release inside the Element broke off (snaped off) as the hood came open. Is this an easy replacement, the plastic release? Possible cost of repair?
Thanks,
Ted Strauss

Can you still grab the inner cable with a vise grips to open the hood? Cable is under $20 less than an hour to fit.
Hi,
I will try and open it with the vise grips. The Honda dealership told me the release (kit) runs around $27.
You mentioned it took around an hour to replace. I guess there’s more to it than feeding a cable through?
Thanks for your response.
