    Mr Haynes say:

    'Disengage the inner cable from the caliper lever, then pull the outer cable grommet out of the caliper bracket.'

    No pics to help I'm afraid. I can only assume you release the handbrake, remove the caliper as if you are replacing pads, wind back the piston to remove any tension from the handbrake cable then the cable end should wiggle free allowing you to slip the cable through a gap and away from the caliper.
