There must be an easy way to get wire and connector out of the housing or do I need to just buy new (old) parts?
Terminal removal tool? I guess I am going to add a new tool to my collection…Sometimes they are tricky. Push the wire into the connector first, insert a flat terminal removal tool, push up to flatten the tab on the terminal, and pull, wiggling the terminal out. It may take several attempts. Make sure the tool is centered and the connector is not melted.
I have one like this. Bend the flat ones out and they’ll fit in the connector. I’ve run into terminals that needed the small, flat remover shaved down to a smaller width to fit.Terminal removal tool? I guess I am going to add a new tool to my collection…
