when you get it open and it comes to renewing the trunk cable, it is wise to firmly tape the new one onto the end of the old one and pull it through......
BUT you will need to remove the carpet on the left inside the trunk as the cable sheath is secured to the inside of the fender with a metal tag (at least that is what my S4 has) somewhere near the fuel filler hose in there....you need to bend out that tag to loosen the grip on the cable sheath, or it won't pull through.

If the outer sheath is fine, then maybe easier would be just to feed the new inner cable through the old outer sheath.
