    removing pins from electrical plugs?

    Hey guys. I'm able to remove the femal "pins" from their plastic connectors, but I can't figure out how to remove the male pins in the other plastic connectors. I need to relocate my little beeper, but to do this I need to remove the male pins. I have a little molex pin pusher but it isn't working. Any ideas?

    I'm about to just cut and re-solder the wires.

    Alright guys I ended up cutting the wires. But not before I stabbed myself with the molex pin pusher.....in that muscle between the thumb and pointer

    I was bleeding like a stuck pig last night. Got that stopped, but I can hardly hold or grip anything in my left hand

    sorry i did not see this sooner the plugs come apart real easy once you do the first one. Look inside the plug pop the plastic insert out with a small flat head and then use the small flat head to flatten out the metal tab on each pin and work one out at a time.

    YOU ASS!!!!!


    just kidding

    Thats what I was thinking, but I couldn't get that plastic piece to come out. Of course I only tried after the stabbing so I didn't try very hard since I was planning on cutting the wires after that incident.....it was my revenge....lol

    You talking bout Deutsch connectors? That’s all I use on my ECM kits. Seadoo uses the same. Easy to remove.
