Need to replace a wire in the junction block

I'm repairing the blower motor wire where it enters the junction block. Some numb nut cut it off and I have to fix it. There is about 1/4" of wire extending out. How do I get the terminal out of the junction block to replace the wire? Thanks

Re: Need to replace a wire in the junction block

Not too sure what you are calling the junction block.

Standard fuse panel on GM 67-69 vehicles unscrews with two screws from the drivers side firewall. Once done you then pry the top off to get to the junctions from the main harness. Also at that point you can easily unbolt the bulkhead connector on the engine side of the bulkhead (aka Firewall) and separate that into its two legs - engine and headlight.

Re: Need to replace a wire in the junction block

I not talking the fuse box inside the car by the emergency brake. I talking the wiring block on the engine firewall that would screw into the fuse box. I need to fix the blower motor wire that was cut but not sure how to get the terminal out of the block to fix the wire. Does it just push out?

Oh, if you were on the island I would say stop by and I'll replace it for you.

It does push out after you flatten the little retaining tab on the connector. Separate the bulkhead connector from the firewall and take a tiny flat blade screw driver and flatten out the retaining tab and the terminal will pull out the back.

You insert a small flat blade screwdriver to depress the lock tab and push it out. Look at the new onw you are going to push in to get an idea of how it locks in.

Re: Need to replace a wire in the junction block

You'll need a packard 56 terminal and "amp pin" crimpers to get a nice factory looking crimp.

If you don't have that stuff you could mail me the length of wire you want to use and I could crimp the terminal on and mail it back. It would be no problem, I have an extra terminal and the right crimping tool. I replaced the resistor wire in the bulkhead with a 14ga wire recently and it would be nice to get some more use out of the crimping tool.

Re: Need to replace a wire in the junction block

I assume the screw driver goes in on the wire side of the block and not the blade (terminal) side. Thanks again
