a 29 1/2" mechanic's pry bar is what we used at the shop...still have it kickin' around...very useful tool...look under near the front under the the mechanism...insert the prybar and twist to release the mechanism~

if there is any cable vice grips to hold the to grab the cable and PULL against one an new receptacle/braket then...possibly with a new cable as well~ this is not a RARE problem with these cars~
