Hello everyone!

I'm about to change the front indicators of my 2020 3-wheeler. Because I'm tired of having their support broken due to the poor design (ridiculously weak welding to the light arm). It’s the second time it breaks in a few months. Same side (right). But I bet that the left one may break any moment too. Or the right one again if I let MMC to reinstall another new lights’ arm under warranty.

This said, I have a simple question I hope you may help me with: is it possible to remove the end of the wires – the metal pins – out of the connector? So, I can slide the new indicator’s wiring through the existing corrugated hoses and simply redo the end pins and insert them back into the connector.

This one with the red and white wires coming from the indicator.

I hope I explained myself correctly.

I’m asking because if I can do this, I can do all the wiring comfortably at home. Otherwise I may cut the existing wires, and weld them to the new short ones of the new indicator, but in the garage, just by the front light and the engine, with little room and light.

Yes you can remove either male or female pins from these Econoseal connectors with a narrow thin blade no wider than that of pin. I've used a narrow blade precision screwdriver although there are pin removal sets available on eBay.

After removing the yellow pin locator sleeve and with whatever tool you use, it needs to be slid in on the plastic catch side of pin to allow it's release from the cable side. A waterproof rubber seal will come out of body with pin.

There are YouTube videos better showing this process. Replacement is much easier, just push pin back in ensuring correct orientation until it clicks into place. Then snug up the individual seal rubber and finally add the yellow pin locater.

As mentioned process is similar for male and female pins.
