Beginning 1/3/94 revised design ICM connectors are being used after the old style connectors are exhausted. The revised connector has a new seal and new design for better retention. Although the connectors are interchangeable, they pull apart differently.
If service is required, be aware of the new design when taking the ICM connector apart.
The previous style connector had a split beam that had to be pushed "down" while the connector was being pulled off. The word "PUSH" is embossed on the end of the split beam, Figure 1.
Figure 1 - Article 94-7-8
The revised style connector has a beam (not split) that must be pried "up", and then pulled off, Figure 2.
