Murray traction Drive Cable

I have a Murray 16533ES (1696031), Murray 16.5TP 33" Dual Stage Snowthrower (2011) with a broken Traction Drive Cable.
This cable goes into the machine, and connects to a transmission linkage that is located on the top of the transmission, using a spring.
I have the new cable (Part #1737511YP) and know the routing for it, however I am wondering if it is necessary to drop the transmission on this machine to change the cable.
Has any one changed one of these cables, and do you have some words of advice to offer?

Thanks for the suggestions 87powershiftx2, I will admit to being a DonyBoy73 Fan, and actually did "google and youtube" this problem..couldn't find anything.
Replaced lots of cables on snowblowers, but never seen one "located" where this one is..thus the question. Seems that the engineers did not plan for replacement of cables.
To be honest, I'm wondering if someone has a Service Manual, or such that might offer insight...if not, out comes the transmission later today.
Glad my primary machine is an older friction drive wheel machine, as they are so much easier to work on.

It is a very poorly designed machine, this should give you an idea where the cable goes. They also frequently fail at the drive pulley. The interior of the pulley itself is plastic and will give symptoms of the trans failing.

OK, so I figured out how to get to the cable and bracket..you DO NOT go in from the bottom, you unbolt the motor housing on the top of the engine (9 bolts), remove the chute and deflector, remove the drive belts and lift the engine assembly off.
This then gives you full access to the top of the transmission, where this spring attaches.
Reassembly is obviously bolt it back together.

Thanks for assistance, even checking with the Briggs/Murray shop here in town was not successful..guess no one has broken these cables before..
