The cable itself is enclosed in a sheath. If the seath is not damaged, then the old cable should be pulled out of the sheath, and the new one inserted (pushed) into it. If the sheath is also damaged, then there is a rubber grommet at the firewall into which the whole assembly must be fitted. Remove the air filter box to gain access to this location. There really isn't much to it.
