Plug De-Pin

Recommended Posts

Looks like it. Are the blue bits rubber or solid?

Would say they have to be removed (try prying out with safety pin, etc) then there will be a retainer holding the pin in which will have to be pressed in (try pin again) while the wire is pulled. If you haven't done it before (& even if you have) they can be tricky/fiddly...

you can but its a bugger on the sealed plugs, you will need a pin extractor tool and a lot of time on your hands?

in most cases your not going to get the wires free on sealed plugs without damage. better off and way quicker by just cutting and soldering . i take it that is a engine bay plug , off a R32-34 ? looks familar ??? or attessa ?

yep. leave the blue bits alone. the plug has two locks. the primary lock is the yellow block. that needs to come out first then the pins are individually locked. a sewing needle is enough to unlock them.

Stuck again, managed to remove the rubber grommets and front rubber bit

Tried to pick the barb from the front for ages but unable to get anywhere, any tricks to doing this, I'm using jeweler set screwdrivers

I'm imagining the pin has arrowhead shaped barbs

pin extractor, yes your correct in the barb type connection, the pin extractor bends the barb down enough to remove the wire and re-insert again without damage, the pin extractor is much thinner then screwdrivers

jaycar sells them and if you ask the nerds(oops salesmen) working there they should show you on a connector how to push it in. it can still be a bugger to undo. make sure you take photos of the plug and even a diagram BEFORE the wires come out.. in case you haven't already

a good bright light and a magnifier glass helps see inside it.to know which side to stick the tool in.

the tool looks kinda like this one

its a test of patience !!!

    • Haha likewise, take my shit box for a spin and maybe you'll end up wanting a R33 shit box again lol...  
    • @Jasoncauser looks like a tight technical track, and definitely fun! Let's hope I make it to that day 😎  
    • The springs just lets the valve bleed off pressure/oil and it bypasses the feed gallery and heads back to where the pickup feed is On the LS the oil gets the the bearings...eventually  This vid explains the OEM pump well IRT the pressure release valve and how the bypass works The oil pressure light coming on intamitantly could just be a sticky valve, but, why pull something apart and not put something better in  I believe the low oil pressure light comes on somewhere between 5-10 psi Well will stick a gauge in after the installation to see what difference it makes at hot idle and higher RPM, and by high RPM I mean 6300 RPM.....LOL
    • My bottom end was rebuilt... so I think it's standard? Or refreshed.. standard? I didn't do it - I bought it with a lot of receipts but it has new bearings, new pump and was re-assembled. Apparently I have the standard flow, standard pressure pump. I did notice the oil pressure for a LS at idle is quite low, but not critically bad, I am happy that it's at about 28psi now (that my gauges work/don't leak). I would have probably specced the high pressure one, but I'll admit my ignorance after making my other post, I don't see how the pressure spring changes things. Given the pressure is a resistance to flow... high flow should also = high pressure, and your oil pump specifications should be dictated by how the engine is built (hence the sincere thankyou video man)
    • my first time on the track, just after getting the 32. tyres were 3yr old NT01's, rotors were cactus, pads were street pads. You can see the vibrations when I hit the brakes lol. After this is when I put new BDA rotors, Hi Temp Brake fluid and Intima type 2 pads. Wow what a difference
