My rear lid release won't open the engine compartment of my 2000 C4 Cab. I checked the cable at the handle and it is not broken there, but it is very loose. Seems like it might have become detached/broken inside the engine compartment. How can I release the engine compartment latch without the normal lever?

Sandy took this picture of the emergency release cable behind the driver's side tail light. Good place for it since you can't get to it. :rolleyes:

I did ask a mechanic how he gets to it. He shoves a thin tool under the bottom edge of the light and fishes for the cable.

My wife pointed out there's a lot more room under the bottom of the tail light when you lift up than it appears. We used one of her "knitting stitch holders" and fished the emergency release wire out in about 5 seconds. Problem solved. People are going to wonder why I carry it in my door compartment! Thanks, again for your quick response.
