Hello Brian, my name is***** will assist you.The cable can be replaced by itself, but with the helm missing or skipping as you say, you could have a broken tooth on a gear inside it and a new cable wil not solve all of your issues. Is there anything else that I may answer for you?

Sounds to me like a tooth how do you replace the helm tooth?
Expert:  Charles replied 7 months ago.
Hello again Brian, Generally you do not repair a helm, you replace it. I am not sure if there are even replacement gears available for the helm.
