Disconnecting the air bag

Recommended Posts

I need to disconnect the airbag in the passenger door in my 2004 cab. I know you have to disconnect the battery and wait 15 minutes, but I can't find anywhere where it tells you how to disconnect this connector. Not sure if I slide the purple piece back, or pull it out? doesn't look like it slides back. It looks like a couple of reliefs to pop it towards me, but it almost looks like one of those splicing connectors. Then does the forward piece simply slide forward to disconnect?

Success.  The pink piece needs a bit of encouragement. I heeded the "old plastic" comment by slightly heating the connector with a hair dryer.  I took an awl and poked the locations "A" until they sprung out far enough for me to pull it away from the connector.  It doesn't come all the way out, just pulls away.  Then with a small, flat screwdriver pushed away axially from the connector at "B".  I'm not sure if you need to the first part, but I couldn't get connector to come out with some force.  I didn't want to push it, so I went ahead and pulled the pink piece back.  Thanks for the help.
