Throttle cable

My throttle cable on my 2005 Ford Focus is sticky in cold weather. Does anyone know how to disconnect it at the engine end to apply lubricant down the cable?

It most likely isnt the cable but the throttle body itself, they tend to collect dirt over time and cause the butterfly to stick. I would remove the tb first and give it a good cleaning.
