Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.
What cable are you trying to install?
Can you provide the model and serial number from your machine so that I can better assist you?
You want to rotate it to about a 90 degree angle to the handle and it should slip right in. It has a little tab on it that fits into a hole in the handle, rather than snapping it in.
You would most likely end up breaking it.
Let me see if I have a video. Give me a moment.
I do not have any video available of this being replaced.
Can you send a picture of the end of you cable? I want to make sure that Toro hasn't changed it in any way.
As you go to install that cable rotate the bottom end up toward the top of the handle. You should then be able to insert it into the hole in the handle and rotate it back down into position.
The lower tab should slip into the slot there along the bottom of the handle as you rotate it back down into place.
I am sorry that I can't be of more assistance. I have never had that much trouble replacing those cables. I have worked in a Toro dealership for just over six years now and worked in the lawn equipment repair business for a total of twenty eight years. Normally that cable will slide right into place pretty easily.
