I think the idea of the clip was to enable the cable to just be pushed in. Unfortunately this rarely works. Sounds like you've managed it. I haven't had to do one for a couple of years but I've done literally dozens of thes. It never got easier! You don't need to cut the bolt off. Lift the brake pedal and remove the plunger. Now get a long bar and lever the brake pedal down. You can just about wriggle the bolt out. Replace it the other way round. I never laid on my back, just twisted out of the door sideways. A good light is essential. No advantage in removing the seat.
