'95 hood release

Bought this '95 ST a few months ago and the hood release comes close to inducing a hernia to get it to release the hood latch. Looked in the LR shop manual and found nothing. Assume it's, hopefully, a "simple" matter of lubing somewhere, or the entire length of the cable? Any guidance would be appreciated. Vic

Look in the part catalog to understand. It is a cable to a release. Could be the cable or the release mechanism being sticky or the hood is held down too tight.
