Quoted from barakandl:
kind of need three hands.
if you are working in the game sit the connector on the bottom of the head wood cabinet. Using a tiny flat blade push in the lock tab to release at the same time you are gently tugging on the wire and it should slide out.
Well, in the end it all worked out. I'd say about 75% of them came out. The rest, the wire actually pulled out of the pin, indicating a poor previous crimp anyway, so I re-recrimped them with new pins, and hopefully I didn't transpose any wires putting them back in. Tried to be careful and do 1 at a time. Now, if only EzSBC would ship me my regulator, I can put this game all back together.
BTW, if anyone ever searches this in the future, I upgraded my crimper to this: amazon.com link »
It's a little cheaper than the blue handled one that I think VID linked on another thread, but man, it's smooth as butter. Crimped 18 and 22 ga with no issues. Don't know why I'd been using a non ratcheting all these years. I dreaded crimps before, but this tool makes it so much easier.
