I'm needing a 32 tooth sprocket on my rear cassette so i need to change RD to Ultegra long cage 6870.
How do I remove the electric cable from RD?
Do I need a special tool? I think i've read somewhere that you shouldn't pull on cable!
Is it as simple as pulling cable out of DA and pushing it into ultegra RD?
I have new chain and a near new 32-12 cassette, just need to know how to change over RD's electric cable.

Ask your bike shop, they probably have a stack of the cable tools floating around.
Depending on the vintage of your system, you may need to plug into the E-Tube software & update the component firmware. If it's an older version than the new derailleur, it may not talk properly, but updating will sort it out.
