    '97 1100 STX start solenoid Positive lead

    Replacing bad solenoid -I followed the same procedure I've done before.
    Last step in removal is to unplug the start switch lead. The wire came loose from the terminal.
    And terminal is in the connector. Then, I looked closely at new solenoid. (should have done first)
    Different type terminal than I expected.
    Now, I have the red connector separated but still in control box.
    What tool/gadget to pull terminal through and out of the connector?

    An update - I tried a sewing pin/steel wire from a steel cable/etc. Saw a UTube video and ordered a set of recommended "tools".
    Nothing worked. Luckily there's a regulator lead (small harness) located totally within the control box. I'll replace the old one and
    new solenoid. -

    If you look closely, inside the plug housing, you'll see the barb. Usually there is only one, but there may be more. You need to put a pick or needle into the plug, and bend the barb down. (light inward pressure on the wire while doing this makes it easier.)

    They do make tools for this, but you need the correct one. There are SO many plug and pin styles....

    Or, if the wire is still there, cut, slide on waterproof heat shrink, solder, tape (use at least 3M temflex, please), and the slide the heat shrink over the joint, obviously heat it, and you're good. Done correctly with proper material, it's saltwater tested and approved.

    EDIT: if you get the pin out, remember to gently bend the barb back out, so it grabs the lock when reinserted. (I use a single side razor blade, but if you slip, or god forbid the corner breaks and jumps into your eyeball.......)
