This happened to me on my '87 Quad.

I spent hours on my back with that hole but with no luck. You cant see anything other than you stuck a long screwdriver or whatever up that hole.

I ended up removing the license plate and drilling a hole. 15 minutes and I was in.

Here are a few pictures of the location and a tool that was posted if you wish.

Also good advice to tape the new cable to the old when pulling through to the latch and make an emergence cable for next time.

Now that this has happened do you have an emergency cable installed for the hood? You should.

Good luck,
