Re: PED 56 Terminal Removal
Ahh yes. For the female end, look at the connector end of the terminal. You'll see a tiny grove in the connector directly below the opening. Use a small brad, a tiny allen wrench or some other object that is faily small in diameter. A large bent paper clip may also work. Insert the object in the grove and it will depress the little metal tang that holds it in. The terminal should slip out the back side (wire side). Be sure to bend the little tang back out slightly if you plan to reuse the terminal. That brass doesn't have reall good spring tension and the removal tool will bend it in to the point the terminal won't stay in the connector any longer.
The male end is a bit different. You have to squeeze it width-wise. The picture you references shows how there is a diagonal slot cut in the terminal. Squeezing it shut will allow it to slip out the back as well. Again, you'll want to spread open the terminal a bit if you plan to reuse it.
