at the bonnet end its just like those old brake cables on bikes, a lump on the end of the cable locates in the latch mechanism

Heads up to all about the other end!
With thanks to Jason (Nottm). I was stuck nearly out of petrol and the cable wouldn't open the petrol flap (operates on button in secret compartment.).

It is a simply matter but less so in the dark to pop a couple of boot liner rivets and reach in and take off the lock/unlock barrel.

Lubricating the bonnet release cable up front I was on to, but not this one at the back end.

Without which if you can't open the flap no petrol = no go anywhere
