Help With PIn Connector

In replacing a headlight bulb the blue AMP connector to the headlight housing broke. Now I have to repin the new connector to the harness. I used without success a SIR Tools 12 piece swiss army knife pin extractor tool, any suggestions for a better tool or on how to remove the pins ?

The tool tip that fits the connector is a 'Flat Twin Blade 1.6 mm'.


Thanks.

Spend the $36 and buy the Sir 9025 set, you will be able to fix this problem, as well as any other similar issue on any car you will ever own in the future...............

I did buy the SIR 9025 12 piece tool and the 1.6 twin blade tool that fit the blue AMP connector to the headlight body did not unlock the pin connectors.

I am looking at other kits unfortunately for more $$.

I do not think that I am using the wrong tip but that I need one with thicker blades.

The SIR 9025 broke, the two prongs were of ueven lenght, the blades bent as a result. Next I'l try Lysle 56500, metal body wich better supports the blades and the metal sems to be better quality and thick enought to disingage the clips on the wire harness female connector.
