Default Trouble replacing clutch cable

New here and I'll add my details to my sig tonight but for now I have a 2003 vegas and I'm trying to replace the clutch cable.

Trying to get the air box out so I have some room to run it through but can't figure out how to get the box out and can't get the end of the old one through the the hole on the frame tube to finish getting it out.

Anyone got tips? Thanks in advance!

yeah neither seem to help me. i already have the new cable.
the keeper holding the cable to the frame down by where you adjust the cable (2:00 in on first video) is blocked by a massive ass wire harness and it seems like ill be spending the rest of the night trying to get it out of the way to loosen the bolt.

then i cant seem to get the cable thru the frame tube just under the handle bars.

You are well past that point where you post photos. Know how?

I load my photos into the 'puter. Hey, I'm an old fart - I don't have a smartphone. Click Quote. Then do CTRL & A - this deletes & clears the space. Type in your text. Click the paperclip in the tool bar at the top of the space. Click Choose File. Select the photo and click it. Then UPLOAD. More pics? Repeat. Done? Click Close This Window. Pics don't appear until you post.

Shit looks like my last post didn't go up.
I was able to get the end of the cable thru the tube and it pulled right thru the the the ring that was mounted to the frame.
I saw old posts of people who had the same problem but none of them tried just pulling it thru haha
