snap on makes a beautiful pick tool that will help.
I use it exclusively on Honda ecu's and it has never let me down.

What about the pins on the engine harness? They appear to have plugs on them as well?

What do you have left to do to complete the swap? What harness are you using JDM?

Just fab up an oil line to my turbo and do the wiring. Then it needs to be tuned and its all set.

I have a dental pic of sorts and I was unable to remove a single pin from the ECU plugs. I could remove any pins from any of the other harnesses except for airbag though. We tried a needle, the dental pick, and a couple other things I believe.

There is small lock on the connector that must be popped up. You can use a very small screwdriver to release it. Look closely, it is on the top of the connector.

Once the lock is "up" you can pull out the terminals from the back side of the connector. I used needle nose pliers to pull them out. I have never used a pick, but the lock must be released before they will come out.

Are you going in from the front side and prying up the lock or going in from the back side and pushing up the lock?

What ended up working for you? I have tried every pick I have and still no luck. What a PITA.

Nothing worked and I have given up for the time being. I need only ONE of those pins free so I can add it in a different spot.

It is right on top of the connector. Look closely you will see a separate molded piece. Pry it up from the top (not from the front or back) using a very small screwdriver.

I'll shoot a pic if that is still not clear. Once you figure the lock out the terminals come out easy.

Pics please.

Pics are worth a million words.

If the subaru ones turn out to be really expensive, napa sells removal tools as well.
