Thread: Hood Swaping
08-18-2008, 03:04 PM #1
I will be swaping out that cracked hood on my "new" 96XP soon and came to realize that swaping the hood is a bit more complicated than anticipated. I can handle the hinge and the gauges but my question is do i have to cut the wires that have plugs on them to get the wire looms out and reconnect them after installation? I am assuming I do. Is the best place to do this in the hull or in the hood? Will shrink wraping and wire crimping be sufficient or do i need to solder and shrink wrap?

Get the tool for removing the individual wires from the connectors. I think the GM tool works on the Doos, generic one costs about $5.00 at an auto parts store. I would avoid cutting and soldering etc if at all possible.
The tool is like a small metal straw that releases the barbs on the wire connectors that hold the connectors into the larger black harness. Insert into the front and pull the wire out of the back. Works on both the male and female connectors.
