Anyone replace old worn cable on equipment ?

Just asking because i have a lat pull down machine where the cable is starting to fray. It doesn't look to complex to do but the ends of the cable may be slightly different with loops and fasteners. I think it will all work but it won't be exactly the same. Going to check out home depot for...
