Okay, so I have a code reader but I just can't seem to get this apart to actually pull codes.
On my '95 Mercury Tracer (read 1995 Ford Escort) the tester connector was located on the driver side near the windshield and I just had to pull off the cover and plug it in. Well, on the connector on my Bronco, it seems like if I try to pull on any part of the plastic it's not gonna give and might break.
Here's a picture of what it looks like

Can't really see, but if you are talking about the two connectors for the code reader? I have to say what the heck? Every BKO I have seen (granted, I haven't seen them ALL), they are loose and just hanging near the harness' under the brake master cylinder area. Let us know what you find. Sometimes figuring out these things can be like a puzzle - a brain teaser?

And the award for fuzziest, most useless picture of the year goes too...



Are you just trying to take the cover off of the connector? Don't worry if the cover breaks; 90% of the Bronco's I've seen have that connector open with no cover on it anyway. Running it with no cover won't hurt a thing.

Yes pull the black cover off of the one on the left, sometimes it can be a real PITA if it has never been removed. Start by taking the test connector out first. It's the single gray plug that's in there.

You are looking in the engine compartment and not under the dash, correct?
Yes, at the plug coming off the wiring harness that says EEC Test.

Yar har har, it's not my picture, I just found it since it was like 4 AM my time and wasn't able to run out and take a great picture of it.

It caught me off guard, like I said, the other EEC Test connector that I used it just came off with a little bit of effort.
Worried about going through water and having it splash up and damage it; then again it's on top of the wheel well so it should be fine, eh?

See, the thing is, is that when I look at it, it looks seamless; as if it's not meant to come apart. Wires go in one side, and it says EEC TEST on the top, and doesn't look as if anything comes off at all. I don't want to just pry and rip the cover off and find out I fawked something up :toothless
