is sunroof teleflex cable easy to replace?

I have read several posts and it seems like this is an easy replacement. Pull the old one out and push the new one in, with some amount of force.

I took the liner off the sunroof in my 87 SDL to attempt to fix a sticking of the sunroof during closure (lubing didn't help). I noticed that the bracket with two bolts that mounts the teleflex cable to the cross piece was asymmetrically bent, and the teleflex cable itself had several deformed/missing annular nylon rings.

The cable was also deformed/bent where it attached to the bracket.

Anyone have insights to this.
