[DML] Re: Help! Truck cable broken!

I have been told that using a new hacksaw blade and cutting the 
latching loop on the hood is a way to get in. You have to protect 
the windshield and have patience (sounds like you have that for 
sure). You will probably have to cut both front and back parts of 
the loop. It may be worth a try. The seal will probably be damaged 
too - but an easy fix.
