Good advice. I disassembled mine then realized it had that plastic access screw.
Replacing cables should be easy and easier with a cable cutter (although standard wire cutters will work). Essentially, loosen the bolt at the deraillure and cut / remove the old cable. You'll have to push it through the access hole described by Ronin. Then, slip in the new cable thru the shifter and route it through the housing. Secure the cable to the deraillure with the bolt. Finally, cut the excess cable and crimp a cable end to prevent fraying.
$1.50 for a genuine Shimano cable:
You may want to lube the cable with a dry chain lube prior to routing it through the cable housing. Also, I dribble chain lube into the cable housing for added lubricity and to flush out debris. Also, take out as much slack in the cable before securing the cable to the der. You many have to do some minor adjustments to get the shifting crisp. There should be no need to adjust the limit screws on the der.
