How to remove a CX AEI Module? + Cleaning connectors.

Hi friends.

Ive been attempting to do some of the things recently recommended to me on this forum as regards to my CX ignition system. (85'series 1 Pallas IE Auto petrol).

Ive cleaned every electrical connector and relay in sight under the hood as best as possible. However some of the bigger connectors seem impossible to pull apart for cleaning (eg the big black one above the battery and a couple of the white ones under the spare wheel.) I tried to spray electrical cleaner into these and It seemed to get in alright, do you guys think this will suffice?

I also attempted to pull an AEI module out of the glovebox of a parts car to swap into mine but couldn't reach whatever was holding the top of it in place. Does anyone know how best to remove these? Does the dash board have to come off?

Thanks for reading guys!
cheers, Moe.:)

did you remove the spare wheel and any covers beneath it :confused: This is where most of the dodgy connectors were hiding on mine.

The actual connectors onto the computers you probably can't clean. You can check the terminals are bent or pushed back into the housings though.

seeya,

Hi Shane,
yeah I cleaned the connectors under the spare wheel as much as possible. however I was unable to pull one or two of them apart, mostly the bigger white ones, though I did spray electrical cleaner into them, do you think that will be good enough to clean them?

cheers, Moe. :wink2:
