Remove the clutch pre=load tube which is where it is hanging. It has some bend in it so it will take a little pressure to pull it out of the transmission sleeve on the engine side and then remove it. Replace this pre-load tube when replacing the clutch cable. Everything else the other expert gave you was correct. Install the cable and put the preload tube and wing nut on last. Just give credit to the other expert since he almost had you there.
