Disconnect

  1.   WARNING: Before beginning any service procedure in this section, refer to Health and Safety Precautions in section 100-00 General Information. Failure to follow this instruction may result in serious personal injury.

    Refer to: Health and Safety Precautions (100-00 General Information, Description and Operation).

NOTE: To avoid wiring pin (terminal) damage, Rotunda Flex Probes NUD105-R025D or Terminal Probe Kit 29-011A must be used to connect test equipment or jumper wires to pins (terminals).

  • Male to female pin (terminal) fit is critical for correct connection and durability.
  • Pin (terminal) fit may be checked by using the mating pin (terminal) to test for normal separation force (a damaged pin or terminal will have very low separation force from the mating pin or terminal).
  • Correctly checking the separation force of small pins (terminals) may require removal of the connector terminal guide/retainer if it adds drag to the pin (terminal) insertion or removal.
  • For more detail on the replacement of damaged connectors or pins (terminals) refer to the video below.

  1. NOTE: The connector hard-shell information, which is measured in millimeters is the distance from the front face of the connector to the engagement point on the terminal release tang. Mark the listed distance on the terminal removal tool prior to removing the terminal.

    NOTE: The dimensions of the connector hard-shell and the connector terminals release tang are listed above the corresponding graphics.
