89 k5 rear window regulator cable

Does anyone have experience with the replacement of the rear window (tailgate) regulator cable with the electric motor ? Luckily, the window is up, but accessing the end connected to the transmission for the regulator is
baffling me. Do you use a chanel lock plier to squeeze the end or another method ...? The cable somehow gnarled itself up on the motor end and needs replacing. Thanks for any advice... BD
