hood release cable broke, unable to open , Subaru part #57330FA100ML?

My hood  release cable broke, I am unable to open the hood, without cutting the grill, yes, this is very bad, ( anyone ever faced this?  Did you have to cut open the grill? , to remove the 3 bolts? )
Once the hood is open , I will install the new Subaru hood release cable #57330FA100ML. ($23.06), but the drawing/schematic shows the cable routed on the passenger side of the engine compartment?
   Has anyone done this repair?
I am also buying a new hood Lock mechanism, Subaru #57310FE030 ( $ 38.33), as mine has a rusty spring set up,
My car is a 2005 SAAB 92 X aero, and is a Ski car, that has road poison ( Salt, calcium chloride)  rust issues,  that splash into the engine compartment .
  The car just broke down with an oil leak, ( hopefully, the oil filter has a pin hole leak, like last time, due to road salt/poison) .  I will try to rubber dip the new oil filter, like a Fram filter has. HELP!!!, Thanks, from Washington State.
