I just picked this truck ('07 double cab/4x4/TRD off road) up last week and still discovering it's "unique" attributes. Today (at the DMV) my hood release cable slipped off the hood release latch mechanism inside the truck and the hood would not release. (Thankfully I had some pliers to pull the release cable with and was able to get my DMV inspection.)
I've been trying to slip the cable end back into the release latch with no luck. Its obvious how it should go, but I don't have enough slack to get it hooked on. Are there any suggestions for a newbie (minimal mechanical ability) to fix this?
I've included some pics of the setup.
(in the meantime I have pliers in the drivers side door for use 'as needed'.)
