What is a tiller ?

The connector comes apart obviously ( insane price from that alfa place !! )

Once apart the pins can be released without special tools as I already said. But the connector body does literally come apart to release all the pins if need be.

I don't think they all fall out - never have for me! Unless you dismantle it completely. I have always still needed a tool to remove them.

The tool is inserted into the connector block from the mating surface so you can push the small tab in. It then pulls out easily. I have a "proper" one from TGS in Germany - it looks like this:

I have exactly the same contacts (microtimer) for the plug but no matter how I plug in the go not in
I'll take a look at it tomorrow.

That's only because you haven't slid the plastic bar out 2mm or so. If I had an S8 connector to hand I'd take a photo for you, but I haven't. Sorry!

I've tried to highlight the area - the long "edge" - that needs to be pushed. It could be the other side, I can't remember but once you find it, it's easy!
