How to remove throttle cable from bracket?

I am installing a 34 deg Weber carb on my Jeep. I have to relocate the throttle
cable to the new bracket supplied with the carb. Do I completely remove the entire bracket from the manifold? Also how do you remove the cable from the bracket? It's 9:50pm and I am trying to get this thing installed. Please help!

I think what you are looking at is just a ball and socket type connection. It should pull right off.. a picture of what you are looking at would get you better results.

[IMG][/IMG] This is what I am talking about. I have removed the rod that connects the cable to the carb. What I want to do is remove the cable from the bracket.

On the underside of the bracket, there are slots in the cable housing. You have to pinch it together a little before you can pull it out. Look at where the cable goes through the fire wall from the pedal. I believe it has the same type of retainer.

The advertised position for a topless, dirty jeep girl has been filled......by my wife. Thanks to all that applied.

Oh.. yeah, that's a pain in the butt.

Like jeepwhore said, there are 2 pieces on the underside of that bracket (part of the cable) that need to be squeezed together. I've had luck with both needle pliers and sometimes a flat screwdriver to do one side at a time.

Putting it back in is a breeze, it just pushes and snaps in.

Now that's what I wanted to know. Thanks for your suggestions. I guess now I can remove the entire bracket.

Finally got that sob out of there. I thought the cable was going to be too short but I got it installed in the new bracket and everything works. Imagine that.
