Seat lock cable removal

Hello
I am switching out rear fenders on my 2007 Wee. Does the seat cable, plastic housing, thing a ma jig just snap out of the metal bracket, the bracket that holds the cable to the lock? I don't want to force it and possible break the piece of plastic. It has a metal hex cover on part of it suggesting it screws together onto the metal bracket? Thanks for your help.
cautious Dave

You need to slide out #8.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

seat lock

Thanks Greywolf. but...I have to disconnect the cable from the lock cylinder in order to remove the cylinder from the old fender.
I am being very cautious about removing the plastic cable housing from the metal bracket holding the cable to the lock cylinder. I am speaking about removing the plastic housing that attaches to the small U shaped portion of part #6.

I'm not 100% certain (and after the "fun" of installing the Givi sidecase racks, I'm sure not taking apart my rear fender assembly to check!), but I think it can be popped right out without much effort or damage. Just slide it out of the open part of the U. I think.

If you are in a shipwreck and all the boats are gone, a piano top buoyant enough to keep you afloat that comes along makes a fortuitous life preserver. But this is not to say that the best way to design a life preserver is in the form of a piano top.
I think we are clinging to a great many piano tops in accepting yesterday's fortuitous contrivings as constituting the only means for solving a given problem." - R. Buckminster Fuller

Well, yeah, I was hoping it would be simple to just pop it out. But it doesn't really just come out easily and before I give it a little more muscle I want to be sure it is just a friction fit requiring a bit more ooomph. I can't figure out what the hex fitting is for on one side of this assembly?

OK I realize it just pops in and out. No big deal. Doesn't mean I won't make it a big deal though.:rolleyes:
