Title: how do you remove pins from connectors?
Post by: sonoramicommando on November 05, 2017, 08:00:42 AM
Hi all,
I made a bit of mess while de-cluttering wiring - I cut a wrong wire going to the back of the big square connector (behind and up the interior fusebox/relay). And I cut it flush to the back of the connector so I can't splice to the wire either.
What I want to do is to pull the pin out and recrimp (or something) to the mistakenly cut wire.
Unfortunately I'm having trouble pulling the pin out - with connectors with larger pins used elsewhere, I have poke the little tab (which keeps the pin locked in the plastic connector housing) and pulled the pin out but that technique has failed me so far.
Can anyone help me out?
Cheers
Sam
