A motion transmitting remote control assembly (10) of the type for transmitting motion in a curved path includes a terminal member (20) for operatively interconnecting an extending length of a core element and a control member (22). The control member (22) has a body portion (32) and a ball pin (36) extending therefrom. The terminal member (20) includes a passageway (38) defining an opening having a central longitudinal axis and a plurality of flexible fingers (40) defining a portion of the passageway (38). The flexible fingers (40) have an engaged condition for engaging and retaining the ball pin (36) disposed within the passageway (38) and a disengaged condition for releasing the ball pin (36). The assembly (10) is characterized by including a cap member (42) for radially outwardly spreading the fingers (40) to the disengaged condition during insertion and removal of the ball pin (38).
