    That's an excellent tip for the beginner. IF the brake cable is being replaced it doesn't matter if you destroy the cable or not. I just take a screwdriver & twist & break off the three fingers. It doesn't matter. BUT DON'T do it until the new cable to replace it fits & looks proper.

    Great tip! Another way is to slip a closed end wrench over the fingers and tap the cable out. Just Incase small hose clamps hide like 10mm sockets in your garage too.
