Right to Repair

The cable seems to be breaking off in two different places - the photo earlier in this thread shows that some plastic remains. That wasn't the case with mine - only the very tip (the thin metal band) broke off. All I needed was a needle (with some tape over the other end so I could push harder on it). Slight pressure on the small clip to push it back just above the break on one side starting at a 45 degree angle and after a few tries on each side it popped up quite easily.

If this is the case for you, don't use a drill, superglue, or heated parts as that will likely cause more damage. I have a photo but I'm not sure how to attach it. Cheers
