Default 1990 Mustang speedometer cable removal

Good Morning,

I am attempting to diagnose a bad instrument cluster and have only the disconnection of the speedometer cable from the cluster. Does anyone know how to disconnect it. I don't want to break anything!

Thanks!

Roll the gauge cluster forward far enough so that you can see the speedometer cable and push on this.
