I find it annoying to unplug the electrical connectors in my 1996 Volvo 850. It is very tricky to release the connectors because they usually have some kind of latching mechanism on both sides so that if you use a screwdriver on one side, then switch to the other side, the first side snaps back. Is there some special type of tool or tools that are supposed to disengage these connectors?
There are two basic types. The first type has a wire clip with a v-shaped crimp that looks like this:
The other type is all plastic and looks like this:
This type generally has plastic ridges or rails on two sides and there are two arms with a catch that slide on these rails and latch the connector into place.
