broken rear window cable in Sebring

The cable on my rear power window of my 05 Sebring is broken. We can see that it is def broken and not just off track. Motor works fine. How to fix and how to get to it in the first place? Or is this a mechanic-only problem?

Thanks in advance.

And apologies if this posted twice. Quite new to this.
