    Hello. I saw this tread https://www.audizine.com/forum/showt...e-Stage-Airbag .

    I bought everything and now I need to switch my wires on the yellow connector for it to work properly. Can anyone help me, send a video or something on how to take those pins out. I just cant figure it out, and yes i did remove the purple thing.
    I got the Lisle 56500 Terminal Tool alo.

    Here are the images of the connector: https://imgur.com/a/2d0tJpA

    For some reason your text is nearly-white on white. I thought you were just sharing a tip .

    You should find the wires wiggle back and forward a bit. Push them into the housing (so the wrong way for removal). The extraction tool should then be able to slip in from the end you show on the photo (maybe into those narrow looking slots?) and press down the retaining "spring tab". It can't do this if you pull on the wire while putting the tool in. Give it a little jiggle out / in / out while moving the removal tool up / down a bit and hopefully the wire will pop out.

    You may need to ease the retaining tab back up to be ~0.5mm proud of main pin body so it will then click into new housing.

    There are 3 pictures.

    The problem is the hole is just so small i can only fit a needle in it. I cant push it more in. I dont know with what should i try to get it out.

    So there are . If a suitable bit of metal or plastic won't go in that slot (bit of milk bottle? - prob too soft; sliver of Coke can?) are they perhaps intended to be released from the other side? In pic 2 there's a sort of zig-zag effect between say the green and white wire. Can you see an edge of the retaining tab against the "high" part, and use your needle in the "low" part to flick it?

    Can you see a code on the yellow housing in super small raised moulding? Might help to take a look at what pins / terminals go in there.

    My guess would be that the tab is snagging on something else. Can you see where the tab is?

    Looks to me like you need a fine needle to try and go in though the little notched gap to press the tab down. See if uour extraction tool can travel all the way through an emty slot. If so try and get it to follow the pin as it moves out to keep the tab pressed down.
