stuck: need help. electrical connector bosch throttle

Post by 850TurboTurtle » Tue Apr 11, 2017 4:17 pm

I can't get the electrical connector free from the underside of my Bosch throttle body on my 2005 S80. I'm afraid of breaking it and I can't finish cleaning or replacing the throttle body until I get it free.

Any quick ideas on how to do this type? Photo attached:

Well, couldn't wait. Got it off. Broke it. But not much. :-)

The trick is to
1. depress the left side to get the
2. middle of the clip to lift off over a
3. retaining bump so it will slide off to the left. On both sides at the same time. (There must be a special tool for this. I think the guy who designed it is a special tool...)
4. It might have helped had I slipped a very thin tipped slotted screwdriver in from the right just under the flat covered end to help pry the clip up over the bump.

Or maybe just soak it in wd40?
