OEM fuse block disassembly

I thought I'd try to use a GM OEM fuse block to wire my street rod project (specifically, I got one off a Cavalier). I've gotten as far as disassembling the fuse block, and have removed the plastic pins that hold the individual connectors in the back of the block. However, I've still been unable to get the individual wire connectors loose from the fuse block.

Is there some sort of special tool required to get those pesky connectors loose? I can't really see in there far enough to tell which side of the connector needs to be compressed, or even to tell the exact shape of those connectors.

Last question, are new connectors that will fit the fuse block readily available? If not, then I guess i'm wasting my time even messing with this style of fuse block, as I really don't want to put splices in each of these wires.

Thanks for any comments.

Fuse blocks

Doc here,

Check here:

For a prebuilt fuse block...you didn't mention what kind of street rod this was going in , so you'll have to read the catalog to match what you need.

Good Luck!

Doc

Yes, there is a -special tool (several actually)- to release the tabs to allow the terminal/wire to be removed from the connector. The terminal ends themselves are availble either from GM or an assortment is available from -THEXTON-.
