pin broke in the 24pin while sleeving

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
So as the title says I've been sleeving my 24 pin and when i tugged on one of the leads the wire came clean out of the crimping, epic fail on the crimping part. but now that pin is stuck in the molex and i dont have the slightest idea how to get it out. any suggestions? thanks

If I understood your right, you need one of these.

i tried using a small screwdriver with the pin removal tool and it just wont budge.

@masterchief i think thats what i need, will that fit inside a 24pin molex for the motherboard?

im using the mdpcx one which i think is similar. my issue is that the wire came out of the crimping with the crimping still inside the 24pin and i cant get it out at all. if i use the pin remover tool it practically covers the pin itself so i cant fit a screwdriver or anything inside it.

how deep is it in?

that's what she said

Try pulling it with some small pliers on the end where the cable was

You don't want to use a screwdriver. If you do you'll screw up the connector (potentially). Use 2 flattened out staples to push the tabs on the pin in if you don't have an extractor.
