New YJ project

Help,

I just bought an 88 YJ and have started the disassembly. I plan on taking it down to the frame and bringing everything back to new condition or better. I've started the wiring pull but am having trouble with the bulkhead connector on the firewall. I can't figure out how to remove it without breaking it. I plan on a new wiring harness but would like to keep everything until I get the new one installed. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

There is a 10mm(I think) bolt in the center of it under the hood. Remove that and 2 plugs will pull off with some wiggling.

Thanks for the help! I didn't see the bolt in the middle of the connector. Just for future reference, it is a 1/4. Again thanks for the help.

What is that "black crap"? It took forever to get off my hands. My harness isn't in that great of shape. Lots of splices from previous owners. I'll probably go back with a painless harness once I decide what engine is going back in.

:beer-drinking: Well I got the engine bay wiring, fenders and hood removed today. Hopefully the rest of the disassembly will go this good. Here are some pics of the progress so far.

No more pictures but I did get the dash, windshield, and interior wiring harness pulled today. Hopefully I can get the tub off tomorrow so I can start the engine, tranny and transfer case. Any advise on how to proceed will be appreciated.
