cmos battery connector tip

I tried splicing the wires from a cmos battery that I need to change from a two socket to three socket connection - it's hard! Then the guy at the store told me you could change the connector just by lifting the tabs on the plug - it's hard because it's so small, but easier than splicing - lift the tabs with a small screwdriver put under the side of the tab away from the entry and gently pry up - the wires should have the indentation facing down as shown. You might need magnifying glasses!

  1. Much appreciated on this. I was asking myself if splicing would be an option (seemed like a real pain) and came across this answer. Thanks again!
