Accu slide Cable stuck in jamb pully

I have a 2008 Gulf Stream Independence with an Accu-slide. I am the second owner and just noticed this week that the upper-left cable to pull the slide-out in was missing (slide has been working fine with the other 7 cables, just noticed the missing cable so trying to repair while the coach is parked). Upon further investigation, the following was evident:
1) A poor installation caused the cable end to twist/rub when fully retracted. This probably caused the cable to break and I can resolve this once I run the new cable.
2) The previous owner seemed to snip the cable (or it was just broken completely off on the outside) but also the inside cabling is completely missing (removed completely from the chain/car by someone).

I was unable to pull the small bit of cable I could find on the outside of the slide so proceeded to remove the jamb cover to see if I could clear it. Once doing so, it was again evident that the cable was snipped just above the dual pulley. While there was just enough cable to get some needle nose plyers on the cable, it will not budge from either direction. I then removed the dual pulley pin thinking that may release the bounded/broken cable. Unfortunately, still was not enough to budge or pull out the broken cable and now I will have to worry about getting the pin back in!

Any advice for freeing this jammed up cable? Seems the pulley covers are riveted to the jamb so does not seem I can remove them.

I'm glad that the video helped you learn something about your MH. As a diy'er myself I'm always looking for info that can help repair something more effectively.
