Hood Release Cable Handle Removal Suggestion

Body

Vehicle Information: Model(924/944/968): 944; Year: 1988; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 92K;

Just a suggestion for another way to remove the hood release handle from the kick panel.There are two holes you can see from the inside of the car on the plastic cover, if you take a small x-acto knife and make an X cut in each you can then slip the 4mm allen into the screws to remove them(they stay captured in the housing), then lift up on the assembly slightly and pull out the bottom far enough to clear the clip, then down and the whole assembly comes out. Then you can take the top cover off without breaking any of the plastic tabs. You will have to pry up slightly so the top cover clears the pivot pin and it comes apart. I found this out the hard way.
