How do I remove the antenna amplifier
OK, I've got the replacement antenna amplifier for my wife's SLK32 AMG.
I am attempting remove the old one and put in the replacement.
First, I disconnected the batteries negative cable.
Then I removed the side panel and then removed the first aid kit.
Next I removed the top piece so I could see into the wheel well a little better.
First I removed the nut holding the amplifier to the side of the sheet metal. I have that nut set aside.
Second I got the connection off that has one plastic clip holding it in place and then you can remove it. I removed the plastic clip and set it aside and removed that cable.
Then I loosened the connector next to it and before I removed it, I figured I would see if I could get the replacement amplifier connected to the first wire I removed.
So I've tried pretty much everything I know to get the first wire put on the replacement antenna amplifier. I don't want to break anything. It goes on a little bit, but I have not felt it drop onto the pin inside the connector
Has any here done this replacement? I could use any suggestions anyone has.
I have searched this site on three different subject matters with no results. I searched Youtube with no results.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to properly remove and replace all four connectors - two on each end.
