Anybody managed to remove one of these when it is this badly trapped, not on its groove. It's the old Sora where it comes out of the side.

    yes, its a pain, just keep calm and it will come. (possibly with some minor dismantling).

    To answer my own question, after many frustrating hours of trying to wiggle it free I opted for option two.
    Drill a small hole, shift the lever up and down until the cable end appeared, small screwdriver to bring it out.
    Works as good as new, will stick a bung in or tape over the hole. Took five minutes.
