Quoted from j_m_:

as I stated in an earlier post, there are 6 points where the lamp and solenoid harnesses pass between the top and bottom side of the play field. when and if you need to remove them, you need to pull out the soldering iron and disconnect those points on the harness
my solution (a tip of the hat goes to chris hutchins for all the wonderful information provided in his thread)
create a couple of smaller, sub-assembly harness sections with molex connectors so that you can easily disconnect that section without having to break out the soldering iron
[quoted image]
on the lamp harness, under the cross over plastics on the topside there are 3 lamps (2 topside and one underneath), creating this sub-assemblies allows me to thread a 2-pin male connector through the hole to the bottom of the playfield
[quoted image]
underneath there is a stapled lamp socket, and by creating a pig-tail harness (each with a 2-pin female connector), I can create a point to connect both the lamps from the top side as well as tie back into the main lamp harness

This is a great tip. Without this the soldering is a big PITA. I wish I would have done this on mine. Nice work j_m_
