Alright! The last part of the series is here. I still recommend removing the bellows, just so you don't accidentally damaged the wire with your flat headed screw driver. But, if you want to do it the way I did here, more power to ya!
Don't forget to remove the hair pin inside the motor! It is what holds the trim sender rubber grommet in place. Once removed, the entire cable pulls out the back. If you can't get the hair pin out, you'll need to splice the cable in the back (by the sender). If you can find a way to remove the hair pin, but can't get it back on, coat the rubber grommet with gasket sealer compound. Keep an eye out on it--making sure it stays in place.
