Can anyone in the Nassau County area help with a V3 PNP install?

If so, please PM me. The problem I ran into installing it is that when removing the small subconnector lock I accidentally pushed it back in. Now it seems that it is locked in place and I have no idea how to get it back out. Can anyone chime in on this? It's pretty urgent.

UPDATE: After taking the car out for a spin today, I have to say that there is a world of difference with this tune. Everything about the car feels so much better. Alex (nj323ci) came out to LI today to finish up the install for me. I have to give him a big thanks and would recommend him to anyone who needs anything installed in the NY/NJ area. Great guy, really knowledgeable about our N54. Thanks again man.

can you explain what you did a bit better... i don't understand what u did exactly. If your car is drivable, i'm in central NJ and can install the V3 for you.

Well the ECU subconnectors are both disconnected, so at the moment the car isn't drivable. The problem I am having is with the smaller subconnector of the two. In the video Shiv says to remove the lock on this subconnector in order to get to the wiring harnesses. However, when I tried to push in the tabs to remove the lock it did not work and I ended up pushing the lock all the way back in place by accident. Now the lock will not move and I can't reconnect the subconnector in the ECU compartment because it is locked. So basically I am stuck until I'm able to figure out how to get the lock off or someone can do so for me. Thanks in advance for any advice given.

Bump. If anyone is located in Nassau County and willing to come to me to help finish the install, please PM me. I will pay for your services. My car will not start and I don't know how to fix it. So as of now I am stuck.

So the slider is pushed all the way in? Can't you just use a small flathead to release it?

The subconnectors were not seated properly (like you said ) and the power wire had to be moved over one position. Thanks for helping me also Steven.
