It appears it's supposed to slip off the side but I couldn't get it to slip off. I tried spinning it, thinking maybe I had to unscrew something but that didn't work. I also just trying to slip it off using light force but it didn't seem to budge and I didn't want to break anything.
I found the removal of the wire clip is the worst part of the repair.
I forced it out and thought I broke the cable but I was lucky. The wire end clip is made of nylon and didn't break:
This is how the cable end look:
I found the right way to remove it, is by either:
1. you can push the nylon head in -OR-
2. rotate the cable until the slot head aligned with the holder bracket and you should be able to slip off through the side.
