530 hood release problems

Hello everyone. I have a 2002 530. Hood does not release correctly.
I have already replaced the first cable that connects to the release handle.

The hood still will not release.

I can get the hood up if I pull very hard while my helper pulls the leaver.
When hood is up and lever is pulled, I can see the bar in the latch move to drivers side of car in both latches.

I have had the car for a year and the safety latch has never popped out of grill when I pull the lever. I have always had to pull it out.

Is there a DIY on this forum to guide me in replacing the other cables and the latches?

Thank you,
