    pull the shrouds off the column. Once inside you'll see the cable come up and hook the small side arm on the shifter. Use a pick or long, skinny screwdriver to lift the loop off the shifter arm. The collar has a single screw. Remove it and hope for the best when you pull it off the column. There is a more than fair chance the plastic is going to crack. Most of the time you can use a zip tie to clamp it back together.

    Heat the plastic collar up with a heat gun before attempting to stretch it over the tube.
