Does anyone know if there is a guide to replace the forward hood release cable? I just got a quote from my local VW shop and they want nearly 200 bucks to do it. Having trouble finding a guide for the job.

This is the part I'm trying to replace: 5G1-823-531-C

Thanks!

Did you manage to get it replaced?

FCP Euro did a video on how to open the bonnet with a broken latch

And in their description they mentioned "Stay tuned for an upcoming DIY where we'll actually install the hood release. For now, we just wanted to share how we actually got the hood open." but that video didn't happen haha

This is the closest possible guide as a reference
