How to remove these connectors...
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hey all. I have a '12 Jeep with aftermarket door locks. I bought it used and I am trying to figure out how to get the doors off. I got the normal connectors off with no problems and noticed these (see pic) which is obviously the power to the actuators. I am usually pretty good with these sort of things but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get these apart. The plastic moves around but the connectors wont come undone. I'm about to go old school on them but I would prefer to leave them intact... any tips or tricks with these sort of things? Anybody have any like these? I have done the whole grip real tight and pull hard, but they are really tight. I feel like if they don't just come apart than they must have a snap or something but I can't seem to feel or see anything... THANKS!

Pull them apart. They are standard male and female insulated spade connectors.

I found a little slack in wire and got a better grip, I also used pliers on one end to get better leverage. WORKED. THANKs!! I think that 93 degrees and 90 percent humidity had an effect on grip as well. :)
