Question How to disassemble Molex connectors going to the ECU?

I know nothing about these kinds of connectors so I need some help. I need to take one wire out of the Molex connector going to my unichip Harness and put it in the Molex connector going to the ECU. Can the wires be taken out individually? Or do I have to take apart the connector?

I am a newbie at things like this so any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Unless the connectors are identical types the pins are not interchangeable. The harness connectors used in the car are not true Molex.
It's possible to extract individual pins if you have a lot of patience and a tool that can release the lock tab inside but it's not easy.
If you don't have a plug-and-play harness for what you are installing you will probably have to cut and splice, or tap, the existing wires to the ECU.

Thank you for your reply mulder. I was told that this is the easiest way to make a MT turboX unichip harness work for a AT. I may just end up selling it and taking a loss. But I will look for a tool that will help and try again.

Is this a normal molex connector like goes into a computer? If so, this link has some info on how to take them out. http://www.virtual-hideout.net/guide...ng/index.shtml
