I bought a different Kenwood head unit (you'll have to wait for pics for once its installed :D). The new one and my old one use the same exact plug that goes into the radio itself. The only difference is 1 wire. Rather than un-soldering 8 connectors just to re-solder them, I'd like to remove this one pin and put it in the harness that's in the truck. The pin is the one on the bottom row.

I have these picks and a magnifying glass.

How do I do this or better yet, can it be done? (never done this before)

Most plugs use a one time installation prong on the pins. Sometimes you can get to the prong with a sharp point from the back and release it but they can be a real bitch.

Shoot us up a pic of the back of the connector and it might give a better idea. Close up like this pic would be great.

grab onto the wire with your teeth and pull like a SOB. Works for me most of the time.

No, its the Blue wire with a Yellow stripe (between the Purple wire and Brown wire).

NO! :nono: :lol:


I used those for my headlight wiring, but only because I pretty much had to. I don't want those rattling around in my dash.
