    I have found the best way to take the cables off is at the pump. It is fairly easy to do. Just make sure not to move the eccentrics too much. It can make for a difficult re-installation.

    And when you put it back together be sure to get the little covers sealed up real good. If you don't they will fill up with snow/ice and cause problems. I use a little silicone on the gasket to get a real good seal. I also put a bead of silicone around the cable where it enters the housing.
