feel free to drop me an email if you would like to borrow mine. Each tool costs about $130 (current pricing from Asstool.com). Here's what they look like:CZVT07 said:Does anyone know the part# or where you can buy the pin extraction tool for the various pins in the HU harness?
Did you actually see the 42 pin Telematics connector or is this a guess. I'm still trying to figure out if the pins are the same, that's why I'm asking.NSX JR said:You should not need a special tool for these. These will be small pins with only one locking tab that you can press with a small knife blade, safety pin, or similar once you have the housing disassembled.
IMHO the extractor tools are only required for pins with two locking tabs (e.g., 000-979-131 and 133). For the smaller pins with only one locking tab, such as the 000-979-010, 009, 018... there is no extractor tool required. Just something small that you can depress the single locking tab with one hand and pull the pin out of the housing with the other hand.CZVT07 said:What would be easier trying to disassemble the Telematics connector and removing the pins with some fine tip oject or going through the process of borrowing the extraction tool? Because I want to make sure that I would be able to complete the Bluetooth install especailly if I am taking my passenger seat out.
(yeap... looks just like that.)AudiA4B6US said:The 42pin plug should look very similar to this one:
You slide the white piece out after removing the dark red locking piece, then to use a very small screwdriver or similar to depress the locking tab through the whole that you can see at the top side of the white piece.
If you look close enough at the grey connector you can even see the numbers (1,16,17 and 32 in this case).
I've been saying exactly that for the last year!!!gregtay said:No tool needed... just use a small screwdriver.. they pins pull out and will fit int he new connector... very easy swap.
