What is the best way to "cut" this cable. Here is the end of the cable. Anybody try to melt this weld off the end? I have a plumbers torch handy.

There is a metal hook up inside farther that prevents the spare from falling if the cable breaks. Iíve found it normally rusts solid here in the snow states. I remove the bolt and pry it off the frame but either way youíll need a new one.
