I am replacing my ignition coil on my vr6, and I am converting it to the newer style(I have an early 1999.5 which used a mk3 style ignition coil). My question is, how can I remove wires from their original harness to put them in the new one. This is not the exact harness, but is very similar(mine has 5 wires), how do I remove these wires?

theres a way to do it, it takes a lot of patience and gentle coaxing. I had to do it on my foglight connectors. i forgot how though

or u cud cut the wire leaving a few inches to work with on each harness and splice together the harness you need

would prefer not cutting because I have to turn around and immediately place in this harness.
