Connector Pin Removal

289 Views 5 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  bucko
While cleaning up the wiring under the dash, I found a burnt wire. How do I remove the pin from the turn signal connector? Eventually I will replace the entire harness. Some wires have 3 or more butt connectors, wires that go nowhere, and wires tapped into other wires with tape. Thanks everyone.

Very small screwdriver or point from test light can usually free the wire.
Here is a link to a discussion I posted on the Packard Connectors. It should give you all the info you need.

It would be nice If this was a Sticky at the beginning of the Electrical Section so members could find it easily.

Thanks everyone for the great info and videos. After reading the posts, I was able to remove the pin and repair the burnt wire. Now on to the next electrical problem.
I've also used a paper clip. Unwind one end of the paperclip and use it like the tool in post #4
