Hi. I have encountered this before. What you need to do to get some slack in the cable, is go to the front cable underneath the vehicle. Get some vice grips and attach it to the cable. Pull rearward on the front cable and you will pull out the slack. When you stop pulling the cable will want to go back, so what I do is when I have the front cable pulled out, I use another pair of vice grips and clamp it on the cable so it cant go back in. This will leave you the slack to work with.
