Replacing the Fuse Box was harder than I thought. There's not much room to manuever to the connectors and I have one connector that I can't seem to get off. It took me 2 hours to get all the plugs off and this one connector is slowing me down.

Its the connector that I have circled in yellow. Anybody have a clue on how to remove this plug?

pretty cool. thought id just add in lots of cars(domestic or forien) are usualyl all wired up the same just the actual options themselfvs and or control boxes are different. so to install factory options its just plug and play. all the wires are there.

Just added installed the intermittent parts on my car last night. Didn't take long at all, and all the parts were "free" from the junkyard. NICE. It's going to rain all week so I'm sure I'll be happy with them right away.

It's a locked plug for the SRS system. IIRC, you have to undo a white lock on it and then you can unlock the yellow portion and pull it out. you have to squeeze two little tabs at the same time and then flip up the little lock. Someone else that has done it more recently can chime in here and help as well.

Here's a pic of it. Sorry that its a little blurry. I dont see two tabs to press in and I dont see a white lock. The whole piece is yellow. I see there is a tab that I circled in green that you can press down that should release the plug. On top there is what seems to be another piece that can possibly flip up to release it as well. I circled it in red. This is the last connection to unplug to complete this and I just can't seem to find out how.


Help!!!!!!

That should help

And as a reminder....PLEASE disconnect your battery before doing anything with the SRS system.

It worked, and I replaced my fuse box. I just have to get it back in position correctly. I only screwed in one side because I couldn't get the other side up enough. Plus I was in a rush to get to work. I'll fix it when I get off. Thanks so much for the illustration. I would have never figured out the lid locked the plug in. Where did you get the pic from?

I got it from the Factory Service Manual. Glad it all worked out for you.

I've been using my new intermittent wipers a lot this week. I LOVE them!

Thanks for this excellent and cheap how-to.
