So if you can summon any more of that knowledge up again I'd be grateful
Sorry, I know the two cables you refer to but not sure what you are asking to do with them. I don't recall having to unhook those.

In fact, I recall trying not to disturb those too much as the thumb adjusters can become brittle and crack like all the old underhood plastics.
