Wired brake distribution block
What's the wire for to my distribution block on my '72 Cutlass with drum brakes all around? It goes into a white plastic piece but I didn't want to pull it and break something. Also didn't want to unscrew it and brake fluid shoot everywhere. What is it and how do you disconnect it?

HEY AD: Could it be the brake light switch? That should be the only electrical connection in a brake circuit....DAVE

Yes that's it but how is it removed? Do you unscrew it or just pull it? I didn't wan't to break it. I inlcuded a pic below.

That switch will turn the light on in the event of a frt or rear pressure failure, I believe you pinch the widest part to remove?

Yep, it's the brake pressure failure warning light.
Just unplug.
