964/993 Hood Release Cables

Cables and Controls

Vehicle Information: Year: 1993; Body Type: Targa; Total Mileage: 19,200;

There are two cables that attach to my trunk lid release mechanism. One is thick and appears to be the main cable. The other is thin and passes through the trunk, piercing the drivers side wheel well. What is the function of this thin cable? Mine is almost completely worn through as if it had inadvertently been partially cut at some time. If this is an auxillary release, where does the other end come out? Under the plastic wheel well liner, behind the tire? Is it necessary for there to be excessive slack in this cable? If I cut the cable completely at the present damage site, there is enough cable to reattach it but there won't be much slack if I do.
