That's pretty much how it goes. On the pedal end, the outer casing of the cable clips into a bracket in the tunnel, similar to how it clips into the bracket on the intake plenum. You have to squeeze the tabs, and pull back on the cable. Also, the gas pedal has an arm that reaches into the tunnel. The end of the cable attaches to the end of that arm. I found it easier to detach the pedal assembly and move it around so I could access the end of that arm.
That makes sense - thanks for the clue. I won't easily accept the idea of a stretched cable and suspect either:
1. The clip is detached from the bracket in the tunnel, or
2. The cable is damaged and untwisting, and must be replaced.
