Hi Nick,

I'll second the idea of drilling the hole behind the license plate. My cable has broken twice - once at the inside release handle and once about half way in between the release and the lock. As Vin said, once you've got the license plate on, no one will ever know it's there. Just be sure to carry (INSIDE the car - not inside the trunk) whatever type of tool is needed to remove your license plate and a long, skinny screwdriver to stick inside the hole you've drilled in order to pop the latch.
