Re: [DML] Removing Electrical Contacts from connectors...

I think most of these plug can come apart.  I just don't want to take 
the chance that this is one of those that doesn't and mess up a 
connection.  Sometimes there is a tool that can be used to push the 
spring clip down that typically retains the pin connector in the plug.

I think I might try the vinegar/scrub method.  Thanks!
