Thorens TD 145 MK2 TP62 Disassembly help

Please if you can help me with advice on how to disassemble the tonearm TP16. In order to remove the tonearm from the bin, I'm bothered by a cable that eventually has a ring that can not be separated.
  I can not figure out how to separate the cable that connects the tonearm to the lowering / lifting mechanism of tonearm TP16. Thank you for your advice.

Why don't you remove it at the other end, where it is fitted in a slot ?

That's a grip.
I'm afraid the brass does not crack at the separation

Did you try, at least ? It looks like a bicycle brake cable.

And for what I see, your cable is missing this part :

This self blocking washer should be on the white pin in your first picture. It holds the brass part at the end of the cable on the white plastic pin. Did you remove it or was it missing ? You should be able to remove the cable.

I tried to remove the metal fuse (blocking washer), but I can not remove it without damaging it.
I'll buy a new fuse and then I'll try to remove the metal fuse lever hoist mechanism.
Thank you for your efforts to help me. Do you have other suggestions?

You will need to bend / open up the steel part that retains the brass barrel on the lift cable (shown in images 2 and 3). This can then be slid out sideways and the inner cable un-hocked from "L" shaped slot.
I'm looking at a TD160 which is similar but not the same.
It also looks possible to slide the outer cable out of the plastic clip.
