What are you having problems with? It's really simple to do so check and make sure you got all the bolts loose on it I guess, need to know whats not working for you though.

Hold the throttle wide open - with the truck off - and pull the cable forward so the cable falls into the little cutout then pull the cable and lead stop out. The cruise cable, if I remember correctly, just pulls off.

Yep the cable closest to the throttle body just pops off, the other one just open the throttle up then flip the cable over and slide it out of the slot.

You SLIDE the cruise control cable to the back and it will slide off the flat disc on the linkage. If you try to pop it off, you're going to break the connector and will have to buy a new cable.

100% correct on the throttle cable.
