Replaced a snapped clutch cable (which met its maker 10 feet from my door). I have a locking shifter instead of a clutch bar, so it took a bit to get the little cable bits out of the housing.
Works like a.....well, like a clutch, now.
I also completely removed the derailleur and shortened the chain.
Taking out the link was easy.
Reconnecting the links without a tool whilst both cranks tried to pull the chain in two different directions, however...
But, the chain doesn't slip and the clutch clutches.
Life is good. Victory is mine
