Stuck connector cable

Hi, trying to unscrew the connector cable from the old router with the spanner provided but it’s stuck - any suggestions?

Re: Stuck connector cable

Could you post a picture of what you are dealing with?

If it's stuck enough that you cannot undo with a spanner then it could be threaded.

Re: Stuck connector cable

That is a threaded connection.

Don't forget to turn it counter clockwise when looking at the rear of the Hub.

Re: Stuck connector cable

Thanks for your reply Mike. Does that mean I need a new cable/VM engineer to solve the problem?

Re: Stuck connector cable

Did you try turning it in both directions?
