replacing rear shifter cable on Shimano 600 brifters - help!
I've got a new-to-me Shimano 600 8-speed bike, and I'm having trouble removing the cable from the rear (drive side) brifter. Doing the same to the front brifter is no problem, as the cable end exits straight out the side of the lever, but the cable on the right side takes a downwards turn, so the cable end is down in the bowels of the lever.
I've tried "upshifting" and "downshifting" with the cable free of the derailleur; Does it need to be installed on the derailleur in order to be removed?
Anyone know how to get the cable out, and pop a fresh one in?
