Hellllllp!!!----Stuck over electrical connector

Post by yabadabadoo1026 » Mon Jun 29, 2020 9:49 pm

Totally stumped and at end of patience on how to separate oxygen sensor electrical connectors. Have a clue how its supposed to work so maybe I have a bad/wrong technique. It cant be as difficult/impossible as i'm finding it . WILL SOMEONE TELL ME THE PROCESS TO SEPARATE THESE THINGS so I can feel pretty stupid finding out how easy it should be I guess. Thanks. ( attached is not the 02 sensor connector but another easier to picture that looks like it) Shouldnt matter but this is a 2001 S60. Not finding anything that moves and can only assume you have to stick something somewhere for a release???????

1. Spray wit WD40 let soak in between plastic.
2. Push down on release with a screwdriver.
3. Pull apart.

The rubber seal in connector makes pulling it apart once you push hard on the release tab indicated still difficult.

Always depress that tab with a screw driver or alike

Push it together a little bit while your depressing the tab , helps.

Don’t forget to be smug after posting “ remove electrical connector” knowing it took you 20 minutes to get it done, too. BTDT.
