That reminds me, I haven't had the hood open on my S210 since January. I could do as Jim suggests, but with a 210 it would cost me a grill insert, A/C condenser, and radiator at the minimum. If I could get the headlight out I think it would be easy. Crawling under with a flashlight, I just can't seem to get a straight shot at the latch from below. Right before the failure, I took both latches out and cleaned/lubed them so they would actually latch. I suspect the cable fell out of the left one after I put it back together.
