147 gear selector plate replacement.
I have finally got round to replacing my gear selector plate with a brand new one from Shop4 parts. Unfortunately i can't get the old one out!!
I did not remove the battery or tray as my hands and wrists are skinny enough and i have enough movement. The problem i am having is that i cannot get the cables out of the holders.
I assume that what i need to do is pull the flat metal plate from each cable as this plate would hold the cables tightly in the bracket. These plates are WELDED so tightly that i cannot get them out! I have gripped them with a square ended pair of pliars and pulled as hard as i can and the only thing i managed to remove was the skin from my knuckles!!
Can anyone give me any advice before i give up and drop it in the garage!?
