Cool Replacing front trunk release cable on 2000 996

Anyone done this before? Any tricks, tips, etc.? My major concern is the pressed on nut at the latch. How can it be removed w/out destroying? Is it better to remove the cable through the trunk or cabin?

Any help is appreciated, Chao!

Why are you replacing it? Is it because you pull the cable and the hood does not always open?

I've always replaced the cable and latch together - the latch is usually the cause of the problem to begin with,.

I'm replacing it for the simple reason that when I pull the release handle I can tell the cable is broken. This cable was not one of Porsche's brightest ideas. Maybe they got it from Ford. No problem with the latch, or at least I wouldn't think so on a 7 year old vehicle. Maybe the saltwater in the FL air does more damage than the clear midwest Kansas stuff. FWIT, I'm still using the original cables and latches on my 1958 356A, 1962 and 1963 356Bs that I've owned beginning in 1974. Again I question the new version of a simple design.

Thanks for your input though.
