Figure 15. Removal Tool on Wire
Figure 17. Removing Contact from Connector
Slide removal tool along wire at a right angle to
connector insert face and align with contact cavity
d. Insert tool into contact cavity until tool tip
bottoms against contact shoulder (Figure 16). A slight
increase in resistance will be noticed just before the tool
tip bottoms. This will spread the retention clip and
release its hold on the contact.
Press wire firmly against serrated edge of
removal tool and pull wire straight out from contact
cavity (Figure 17).
