    Can someone help me understand the correct process to remove these cords where they enter the power supply box? (Circled in yellow). Thanks. I don’t want to screw it up. Lol

    Heyco Grommet tool #0029. New ones are pretty pricey, picked one up on ebay quite cheaply.
    There's also the chinese version on amazon - search for "ProsKit CP-311".

    Here's the Heyco version:

    Ordinary pliers work fine for me - just squeeze the plastic together on the inside of the box while prying it out with a small flat screwdriver.

    It isn't rocket surgery.........
