    Help disconnect 60pin at firewall?

    I'm trying to disconnect the main big white harness connector at the firewall. I turned the 10mm bolt counterclockwise umpteen times. Maybe its stripped? Should turning the bolt pull apart the connection? Is there a partial turn on the white connector needed? Perhaps I need to get out my...
