    Long story short..pop white piece out front, pop black piece out back, depress pins to allow them to pull through. The most critical part of this whole thing is applying adequate upwards pressure on the pin keeps. You should be able to do as I did in the picture and hold it with one hand while you push the pin through. If not you do not have enough pressure!! Slide a flat blade in and pry towards the pin itself (lifting up on the tab inside) I used a square head bit to push the pins through. If they don't go fairly easy STOP. If you're doing it correctly they slide easy. If not, you'll f*ck it up. Do not put anything inside the pin! Find the right OD 'tool' to press on the outsides of the pin

    Just out of curiosity, why would one want/need to re-pin the coil connection?? Not being a smartass but just want to learn.

    If you broke the retaining clip and are anal about having it working as originally designed.
