DBW Throttle set up

I read somewhere on this site that some of you route the throttle harness through the factory accelerator hole. When I contemplated doing this I can't see how to get the plug through the existing firewall hole. The plug is 1 5/8" wide and the hole is only 1 3/8". Do you remove the wires from the harness plug then reassemble or do you enlarge the existing hole? If you are disassembling the plug end are there special tools and techniques to do this? I would hat to screw up the connector.

You need to remove the wires from the connector to feed the wire through home then push the wires back into the connector.

Take a couple pics and note location of each color wire.

I pretty much thought that's what the plan would be. I think I have the tool to do this so will give it a shot. Do you fill the hole with some kind of grommet or cover?
