Tips on replacing Drive Control Assembly (400292) on Craftsman 917.376164 mower

I've read the manufacturer's directions in the answer to other questions, but would like some additional tips for replacing the drive conrol cable (part 400292) on my Craftsman 917.376164 mower. What is the best way to remove the old spring and insert the new one into the tab that's on the Gear Case assembly? What is the best way to remove the old cable where it snaps into the Belt Guide Bracket? Can you just squeeze the sides and pull it up? Any hints to snapping in the new one? When installing the new cable is it best to start at the end with the with the spring or the end that attaches to the Drive Control Bar? What is the "Drive Control Adjustment procedure" mentioned in the manufacturer's directions? Any other tips that would be useful would be appreciated.
