Need some help with SRAM ESP 900 shifter

Hi all, first time posting here.

I need some help finding cable change instructions for my ancient SRAM ESP 900 grip shifter. I turned the SRAM website inside-out but no dice. Apparently SRAM likes to change the way the cable slots into the shifter almost every time they make a new model

Anyone able to help?

It helps to remove the shifter from the handlebar, but otherwise it's pretty easy.

Remove the phillips head screw from the grip housing cover and pull the grip assembly from the housing. The spring will likely fall out so note its position. Also pay attention to the way the cable is routed through the housing and grip assembly. There was a special grease you were supposed to use - Jonnisnot from Sram, but I have no idea where you'd find some today.

Thanks very much, it was a success.
