Sorry my friend, I think you won't find one....The best way is to fold back the carpet and locate the end of the broken cable, and then take a pair of pliers and pull the cable from there...
When it comes to replacing the cable it would be easier to remove the front and rear seats enabling better access to the cable....Then fold back more of the carpet.
There is usually a ten millimeter nut holding down the lever.... Remove that and then remove the trunk locking mechanism....That will mean removing two additional ten mil bolts
With those removed unhook the cable from the lock....It will have a small round ball at the cable end. This can easily be removed via the slot provided.
Tape the new cable to the end of the old one....Unhook any outer cable retaining clips you find, so the the cable cannot be caught anywhere.Refit in the cable into the trunk lock mechanism, this so that the cable cannot be pulled all the way through, if you should pull too far....gently pull the cable through
Refit the lever to the floor and then refit the trunk mechanism....The rear cushion is released by pulling upwards and fitted back by locating the retaining tongues into their slots....To remove the front seat, move all the way forward to remove the bolts at the rear of the rails and then slide it back to get the front ones removed....
Sorry I couldn't help any other way....Regards Johngee10
