Adding Foglights-Depinning Connector at Block

Recommended Posts

Adding the factory foglights to my '19 GMC Sierra. I'm at the point where it comes to removing the wire connector from the body 2 in the UEC. I'm having a hell of time releasing present B3 wire connector socket from the block. I know it has to lock tabs on either side but unable to get it free. Tried using tiny allen wrenches, paperclips with no luck. What's the trick???

I too had trouble with this. Messed with it so much that I ended up unsheathing the wire on the underside. Even bought this which is made to do the job and didn’t have success. Ultimately gave up in hopes I can have the dealer do this one step as part of the one hour labor they will charge me to update the BCM. Let’s be real; they’re not spending an hour for a program flash. Shouldn’t be an unreasonable ask.

So I'm not the only one. I'll get back at it once I have more time. Never had this much trouble with other connectors, must tighter tolerances and the right extraction makes the difference.

Figured it out, there are secondary locks on the sides of the block. Pop the one out closest to the wire your working on and release the pin. Wire connector comes out easy peasy once you know how, no special tools needed!

 

Too bad I had to return the fog light kit because the one light assy had a broken piece of plastic inside, and they were backordered for a replacement. So I returned for credit. No lights but know how to wire them. Wth
