Did the cable brake off inside the housing, so if you unhook it some is still left inside the housing? There are 8 bolts that hold it together. 4 on top and 4 on bottom. Problem is the upper mounts are hard to reach. They are 1/4" head bolts. I just took two dashes apart and much easier with the entire dash out. Good luck.

If it's just a part of the drive broke off,maybe you could use a magnet to get it out.

the end that broke off is plastic. i find it hard to believe they would use a plastic end on the cable. anyway it looks like it's going to be a major task. thanks, walt
