987 Roof Clamshell tension cable ball joint difficult to disconnect.

Cables and Controls

I am trying to access the engine on my 2008 987 Boxster.  However, I am not able to disconnect one of the tension cables from the roof's clamshell.  One side of the roof's clamshell, the ball joint was disconnected easily with just a little bit of force required simply pulling on the ball joint's stem.    On the other side, I am unable to disconnect the ball joint.  I have tried wiggling the joint, different orientations, and applying a considerable amount of pressure, without success

Has anybody else run into this problem before or have a suggestions how I can disconnect the ball joint.

Thank you in advance
