Replacing Front Derailleur Cable

So sometimes my bike would do weird things at the front derailleur, so I decided to align it better as I noticed it was tail out. After doing that I had to try to adjust it. While doing that the end came off the cable and well now I have a pretty frayed cable. So eventually I am going to have to replace the cable. It appears to be relatively easy to do? This is a Nikishi Maricopa road bike with the Claris group set. I could really use some direction on exactly what parts I should buy before I begin this one. I've found videos for how to change a cable, but nothing Claris specific which would be nice. Little lost on how to remove from the shifter.

Before you remove your existing shift cable, take a good close look at how the cable is routed. Maybe even take a picture.
