Question Parking Brake Cables

is there any kind of trick to getting the parking brake cables out of the return spring arm on the rear disc brakes of my 79 T/A?

Unfortunately I'm not familiar with the set-up on the T/A but I know on some of the rear disc jobs I've done I've had to use a long pry bar to add leverage to move the arm in order to remove the cable.

I use a worn out pair of side cutters with the cutting edges blunted to get between the spring, once the jaws are inbetween the spring loops grip the cable end with vise grips and use the side cutters to retract the spring and grip the cable so you can manouver the cable end out. Works with 99% of all cars.
