My cable was destroyed from rust, I made a deal with a member here to get a couple broken DHC that I can use for spare parts but once I get them I'm planning to test my door with no outer sheath because I noticed how much force the outer sheath adds and I think that can be eliminated and remove one more freeze hazard (and the only one BMW officially admits to).

I was dumbfounded how much more effort it was to pull the latch release through the cable vs. directly. I'm hoping I can just remove the sheath and shorten the cable (by tying in a knot) I may have to add a small pulley so the angle at the bottom doesn't try to pull the ball off. I will definitely follow up on that.
