    Removing top deck problem

    I cannot get the wiring harness for the life of me to come apart.....I push red tab back, nothing comes loose....my knuckles are busted, I have about had it. How in the hell do you get wiring harness to come apart...about ready to set this thing on fire.

    "Unplug the harness by pulling back the red tab and depressing the clip"

    What clip? Is there supposed to be a clip on the backside opposite side of the red clip? If so mine is missing. Little piece of plastic looks like something busted off.

    Is there supposed to be something there to help take clip apart? If so, this explains why they basically refused to take my top off. I even gave them new stainless washers to install once they removed top, which means they should have done it regardless. They also busted a plastic tab on my side panel, put my trailer on but didn't puch hitch lever down, and left the plug for computer to hook to bouncing around....

    wow man...wtf!? I wish I couod help you. I heard another Spark owner having the same problem with the harness plug. Those types of electrical connectors can be a pain. Isn't the side panel a recall item anyways? Shit dude...you've had a crap day from the sounds of it and the schmucks at that shop sound totally worthless. When did you notice the trailer hitch wasn't closed?

    Well I got it off without breaking anything. (why I don't work on shit) I used a tiny flat head, right above the red tab there is thin piece of plastic under where it sits when it is locked. Barely touched it and the thing popped open. Does the pic above look similar to all yours, the opposite side of red tab? The blemish in picture in middle of two vertical bars is where I think something used to exist before it broke off. I looked at all the oem drawings and can't find a good example.
