Removing Parking Brake Cable from Frame Bracket???

I'm trying to re-route my parking brake cable, and I can't seem to remove it from the parking brake bracket near the rear leaf spring eye.

A single cable is routed from the foot pedal down the length of the truck, and then it goes to a bracket where both cables are tied into the one cable. From there, each cable gets routed through a bracket that is welded to the frame.

The is near the forward mount of the left rear leaf spring, on a long bed.

I have removed the bar that ties the two cables to the one cable. however, I cannot seem to thread that cable back out through the frame mounted bracket. There's collar attached to it, but doesn't seem to be a way to remove it.

No C-clip or bulkhead type of fitting.

Any idea how to remove it?

Here's a diagram. The red arrow shows the area I'm having trouble with. I cannot seperate the cable from the bracket.

The Ford Repair CD says to "remove it". Yeah...okay.



Thanks in advance!

I drive too fast to worry about my cholesterol.
