How to remove the wire cover on 2013 Camry ECU E26(B) connector plug.


Asked by Aug 07, 2015 at 02:57 PM about the 2013 Toyota Camry LE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I am trying to measure several signals coming out of the ECU large socket E26(B). The wiring cover on the connector plug seems to slide on/off lengthwise on plastic side rails but I cannot find any release tab(s). How do I get the cover off?

Any chance of providing a picture of connector and ECU?

Other side is identical.


Close Up!


I meant to send this close up!

It appears you squeeze those plastic tabs at the top and slide?. Try to nudge it back and forth. You might try a small amount of Lube on those slide rails.

OK....taking a second look at that connector assembly. I see you already removed the tie holding the connector cover to the harness. Blow some of that dirt out of the area if you can a gently squeeze the bottom of that cover near the slide area. The factory either slid the cover in place or just snap fit it by pushing straight down. A little gentle persuasion with a thin screwdriver in the slide area may help. Good Luck


Top cover slides freely about 0.1mm toward the free end then hits a solid stop. The top cover is locked on vertically by completely enclosing around the rail on the bottom part that runs the entire length of the connector with the slight overhand on the harness end seen in the close up photo. The bottom section also has vertical tabs against the cover sides holding the cover channel against the rail. Can't pry on anything without chipping the hard plastic.
