How to disconnect this washing machine drum suspension cable?

I'm taking apart an old washing machine just to see how it's all put together and am puzzling over how to remove these ends for the drum suspension cable without simply cutting the cable.
Anyone have any insight?
Thanks

Turns out there's a snap ring on the other side of the bracket.
