Default Noid light hook up

My mechanic told me the next step is to hook up a noid light to the injector.

Does a person take the electrical connector off of the injector and put it in the connector.

Also, how does that electrical connector come off the injector?

It's on a 2004 WRX.

the connector should have a plug, just like any harness connecting to a sensor, motor or injector. it probably looks something like http://media.photobucket.com/image/r...g_pics/010.jpg

have you put your head under there to look yet? it should be relatively apparent. If you can't figure it out, you probably want to let someone who knows what they're doing handle it for you.

maybe if you could also explain what's going on instead of jumping in at the middle of diagnosis.

Started with checking the fuel pressure, which was ok, and then he advised me that this would be the next step to check it when it gets warm and doesn't want to start. At that point check it with the noid light, I guess to see if there is a pulse to the injector.

On mine, it has a tang or tab that slips into a V shaped piece on the plastic. The end of the perrin fuel rails makes it hard to get it separated. Looks like it would be simple, but doesn't seem to be.

Mechanic said the coolant temp sensor was working.

I got the tang loose from the connector on the injector, but can't seem to figure out how to pull the connector off after all that.

What am I missing?

Just a simple test to see if the injectors are firing when it acts up and doesn't want to start.
