I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

Where you do not want to join the cable which has been cut but replace the entire section with the screw removed you can use a putty knife to prise it open its likely over the years you have debris in it preventing it coming apart.
