I'm working with a 1996 Caprice LT1 underhood electrical center. I need to remove some of the terminals which connect to fuses and/or relays. I can't figure out how to get them to release. Any suggestions?
There is a special tool for that BUT you can make your own. There is a small tang that must be pulled back to extract the wire. Need to make a small stiff trip about two inches long and slid it in from the wire side. It needs close inspection to see where the tang is but once you get the hang of it things go fast. Try a google search?
Believe it or not there is a ton of technology in those terminals and connectors. The terminals in use nowadays (includes your vehicle) are manufactured of very thin tin plated steel and are easily damaged if extracted with the wrong tool. Joe's info is the way to go.
