OK, this shouldn't be difficult, but it evidently is... 
I'm trying to swap the pins on this connector.

I believe I have to first remove the yellow plastic piece... but I'm not having much luck. 

Any suggestion?

@DHappel or @Graemeware?

 

Thanks!

you need the correct tool, or maybe a paperclip will do in a pinch, to press in the little openings above the pins and hit the locking tabs to get them to release.

From memory they are the same as Deutsch connectors.  The spacer just snaps in and just needs a 'tug' with a pair of long-nosed pliers.  Each pin can then be removed by pushing a paperclip up the channel to the side of it (from the cable side), which pushes back a plastic sprung prong which locks it in place.  The cable and pin then pull to the rear of the connector.

Sorry I missed this - I believe I have the tool in a connector kit somewhere.

 

I'm ready to get back home!
