How was the cable and sealing sleeve installed?

Did you slide the sleeve (grommet) onto the cable first, then slide that whole assembly into the case? Incorrect method.

Did you install the sealing sleeve (gromet) into the case first , then install the lubricated cable end into the sleeve? Correct method
