Brain removal

Ok, so I start stripping her down and find the usual assortment of rusted in bolts, rounded off Allen heads etc and then I get to removing the sub-frame. Stripped the easy electrics out, took out the shock reservoir, and I just can't figure out how you are supposed to remove the "Brain". I've removed the 4 nuts holding it down, I've looked for a cable connector to, ahem, disconnent and I just can't see how this should be done - it's removal is not described in my manual either
Any advice would be appreciated.

regards


Neil

On the later 851/888 (and Laverdas) there are only 3 bolts (rubber cotton reels actually) holding the P7 in place, so I'm a tad puzzled too?

The 35way connector has a sprung tab holding it at one end and it hooks on at the cable entry end and on mine its a case of springing the clip off and angling the connector so that the hook disengages and voila!

With practice it gets easier than trying to write how to do it!

Hope that this helps

Paul

OK, there are 4 bolts holding the 'brain' in place and I have removed all of these. I can see that the wiring harness goes into a connector and it's this connector that I just don't seem able to remove.
At the rear end of the connector is a small philips head screw and this is next to what looks like a pivot pin.
Initially I thought that the screw was just the connector retainer and removed this expecting removal to be easy but it does not want to budge - obviously I was not keen to use a lot of force as I'm not aware of how tight a fit these things are !!
I'll try again tonight and if not successful then I'll post some photos.
cheers

Neil
