How do you lift the locking bars on electrical connectors without
snapping them off?
I may have a corroded terminal on my alternator (idiot light can be
made to go on/off by wiggling cable to alternator), but know from EGR
circuit repairs that these locking tabs are now brittle and break off
if only slightly over-flexed.
The cold will only make them even more britttle.
I think you can buy an aftermarket or factory harness repair kit to
that connector as i recall.
Also, if its a spade type terminal, sometimes you can clean it and
bend the edge of the contacts inward in the connector to put more
on the connections.
