Must be a seized mechanism, if it is the rear hinged type, you need to get behind the grille if you can and release the catch from underneath.

They are hard to release on all vehicles. You need to pull and release the tension with a wrench attached to the tensioner and slip the belt off the same time removing & installing it on

Bonnet cable routing Mitsubishi Evo VI


Your cable is generally sold as a one piece unit...cable inside housing. (same as a bicycle brake cable) Many even come with the release handle attached. Therefore, you simply feed the new one in exactly where the old one went and attach it to the lock mechanism. This can easily be done by attaching a wire to the latch end of the old unit and pulling it out from the drivers compartment, then attaching the new one to the wire and pulling it back through. In that way, you don't need to see it to install it (like snaking a wire through a finished wall, without opening the wall.)
If you do it carefully, it should not be that difficult.
Good Luck!!

Replacing ignition switch on Saab 1996 900s 2.3 I 5 speed


You take all the center console and plastic ducts from between the seats. There are 4 10mm bolts holding the shifter mechanism to the floor. Take these off and do your best to flip the whole housing to where you can access the bottom side. The ignition switch is attached under there. As I recall there are 2 T20 screws holding it on.
