Longer hood release cable

Post by 240sxguy on Mon Jan 26, 2009 4:12 pm

I have finally totally damaged my S14 hood cable sheath. Its not long enough to tuck high into the wheelwell for my snow tires not to rub on it. Do you guys know if there is a longer hood cable I can use from like a Q45 or something? I emailed a seller on ebay about the length of a I30 cable, so Ill see how that turns out.

Thoughts, suggestions?

Thanks.

not sure if this helps at all but check

www.Car-Part.com

Or try going to or calling a junkyard and ask for the part, MOST junkyards have a way to check if a part off another car will work.

i'd look at the M30,Q45,I30,etc. maybe a S13? i'm not sure.

I don't want an OEM length cable so I can be sure the JY will tell me that it won't fit. Ill keep looking for someone who has a removed cable that can measure it for me. Its not the end of the world in the meanwhile, just the outer skin is broken but I am sure it won't be long until its chewed all the way through.

Ill post up when I figure something out.
