Doc here,

Been a long while, but I think that switch has a bezel that unscrews with the aid of a special General Misery tool..

Does the ring have 2 tiny holes in it? If so this is where the tool inserts.

Snap ring pliers sometimes will work, (be careful not to damage the chrome/dash from slips, use duct tape around it..) Or you could make one to fit the ring to get it off..

Look at the faceplate of the lock cylinder where the key goes. Is there a tiny hole in it? If so, you need to find a piece of wire that will fit into that hole. A partially straightened paper clip will do. Put the key in, turn it to ACC (counterclockwise), then push the wire into the hole. Some springy resistance is normal. While the wire's in, turn the key counterclockwise some more. You should then be able to pull it out. You may have to jiggle it some during that last step. A good hosing with spray lube can also help.

Doc here,

Which end are you trying to remove?

The cables should be held in place with a compression washer on each, just remove that, and slide the end off..

As far as new cables, I should think you can order them through any good parts house.

Doc here,

Just carefully squeeze with a pair of pliers, and pull the washer off.
