240D heater valve removal

I cannot figure out how to get the 2 cables off of the valve arms on the heater valve assembly located on firewall. I pried a little, but didn't want to break off the ball-tips on the arms.
The two cables go into the firewall through protrusions that appear to be snap-ringed in place.
How does it come off?

**edit**
To clarify, I can get the valve off just fine, that was easy. I can't get the cables off, and that is my question....

They're definitely a PITA...when I've removed them successfully, I used a small pair of pliers to grab the coiled end of the cable and gently and slightly uncoil it enough to slip the end off that valve lever knob.

Hard to describe the method....

Needle-nosed pliers worked on mine, but it took a little patience.

Of course, you could just clip the ends off the arms to free the cables and replace the valve with a new one. $53something from Phil.
