Ok my wives 08 beetle convertible tenstion cables snapped. I went down to VW bought the repair kit that the vin called for. After about 30-40 mins i got all the cables into thier respective places minus one, on the bottom right the cable will not stech enough to go over/around the pully. I tried to run it around the pully first then connect it to the block but that was no good. I've seached this site VW Vortex and google to no end yesterday and today, all i keep finding is how to's for regulators that are attached to the door panel where as mine seperate from that and stay in the door. Please help it is raining near everyday here so the time i get i need to use wisely.

It takes some effort but the cable will stretch around the pulley. If your old cable is still good you can re-use it. Not sure why but the replacement cables are shorter than the oem ones

So it will stretch without breaking something. Ok. Any advise on what will make stretching it easier?
