Wiring Harness: Removal and Replacement

Secondary Lock

Secondary Lock

The secondary lock is a housing securing mechanism (second locking mechanism) that secures all wires in one terminal housing. If a secondary lock is
installed at a terminal housing, it must always be opened or removed using specified tool before releasing and pulling out individual crimp contacts.

Secondary lock is distinguished by a different color from the rest of the contact housing. It simplifies recognizing the secondary lock and clarifies its
function.

The shapes of the terminal housings depicted here are only a selection which, as an example, should make clear the various functions of the secondary
lock.

Example 1:

Housing securing mechanism is released by removing a "comb" - arrow -.

Example 2:

Housing securing mechanism is released by opening a "flap" - arrow -.

Example 3:
