Throttle cable install

I have searched and didn't really come up with anything helpful. I am in the process of replacing my throttle cables on an '05. On the motor side, I cqan get the top cable on, the pull side I believe. Now tonight I will attempt to get the bottom cable on, the return?

Are there any tricks/tips to get that bottom one onto the pulley without taking off the pulley? I looked at it real quick, and it doesn't even seem like you can see the hole that the cable attaches into.

Any help would be appreciated, Thanks.

OK, I decided to pull the pulley off and got the two cables attached. Are there any tricks to getting the return spring wound twice around the bushing? Someone said wire but I couldn't get that to work. Any ideas? Someone must have some input on this. Thanks.

remove the throttle bodies, get the cables set up & then reinstall the t-bodies making sure to route the cables properly to the clip on.

Thanks, I ended up using a piece of wire to pull the return spring. The thing that took forever wa sthat I read on here that you had to wrap the spring around the bushing twice. Well, after an hour of work and the wire breaking and me punching myself in the nose, I realised that there is no possible way to rap the spring twice. It must have only reversed on turn and got caught.

Anyway, it's back on and working just fine.
