odometer cable

  The odometer on my '86 4000CSQ just stopped working at 123k last
 week.  I checked the back of the instrument cluster to see if it was
 still attached and it was.  After further investigation I found that
 the black thingy that locks the cable to the back of the cluster had
 broke, allowing a spring to come out, thus not keeping the cable tight
 against the mount.  I bought the car used at 83k, so I wonder if a former
 owner(s) had previously messed with the cable.  Anyway I assume the fix
 to this is a new/used cable with a good connector.  Is routing the cable
 through the firewall a simple task?  Also what is the procedure for 
 diconnecting it from the transmission?
