Having trouble with wiring harness connectors

Hey Guys

Im installing an LT-8 on my FC and Im having really difficulty trying to free up the metal pins inside the plastic connectors. I went to snap-on and purchased a special tool for imports that aids in freeing up the metal pins from the connectors. I must be doing something wrong because I cant free up sh*t. Can someone who has done this already chime in?

Basically I want to use new wiring from the LT-8's wiring harness, not just soilder on new wire to old wire. Hopefully this makes sense the way Im wording it.

Thanks
Chris

I've used a paperclip in the past for some of the extra wires that went to the wiper's connector (inside of the cabin).

HUH!!! You lost me.

Im talking about freeing the metal pins inside the plastic connector. Not sure what a paperclip has to do with that.

You push on a small tab of metal so that it clears the plastic tab which holds in the wire. I had some success using a paper clip to do that.
