    Hey Rammers.... lol. I have searched here and other sites + googled ...
    I cannot figure out what tool i need to unpin the wires from the FCM. Trying to remove wires from a donor truck and install for upgrades to my 14 RCSB.
    I got lucky with my fog light project and they popped right out when i pulled. The Hood latch wiring is another story.

    If you could post a pic of the proper tool to use or a video would be appreciated. I picked up a multi kind of tool at the local auto shop, but i obviously don't know what im doing or have the wrong tool.

    Much thanks in advance.

    From what I’ve found most of the pins can be remove with a sharpened paper clip. Just file an end and turn it into a miniature flat head screwdriver. This lets you get into the connectors and move the little “lever” that most pins have.

    I found a decent set of pin removal tools on amazon for $7.00. They work well.
