The guys at Ford or Haynes or wherever they came up with this name must've been from another planet where time goes reeeaaalllly slow because there is absolutely NOTHING quick about it!
Now there's enough room to squeeze the connector through. It's gonna take a lot of squeezing to get it in the same position as the original was. But you need it to be there again to get enough length to reach the connector.
All that's left now is to screw everything back together again :-)
