Ok, so here is a seemingly simple write up on how to pull your SPOUT connector so you can pass your emission / smog test with ease. While the connector is pulled your car will feel like it has a loss of power, and is running with about 100 HP. That is normal when the connector is unplugged. I had a hard time actually finding it, but sure enough, it is down there. Ok, First things first, remove the black plactic shroud where the EEC self test and ABS test are located (the SPOUT will be in the area directly under those 2 test "plugs"). Generally located behind the engine on the passenger side... there should be 3 plastic fastners, undo those and it should come right off. that frees up tons of space for you to get your hand down there (as space is a little tighter in the MTX) Once the shroud is off, just make sure the spout is not right under your nose, the connector looks like this (This is the ACTUAL connector, this is what your looking for) If its not visable, you need to dig a little deeper. Mine was simply hiding behind one of the several wiring harnesses that are back there. Its best to get a flashlight down there because that will allow you to see around or under some harnesses, Dont give up, it is there... There are a few connectors down there, you re looking for this one (this picture shows you how big it is in relation to my finger) If you still cant find it, just stick your hand in there and start feeling around...It will be like using Braille but once you feel any connector, try to take a look at it, feeling for the one I pictured above. Once you find it, in order to unplug the grey "jumper" you need to pull apart the tabs that hold it in, which is easy. The tabs are long, at one end they are holding in the connector, and at another end you push down on it and it will make the tab rise out...and then you hold the connector with one hand, and pull the grey part with the other. They should just come right out, if it doesnt, one of the tabs is still locked in... This is what the jumper you are trying to take out looks like: and this is what the empty connector looks like: When its time to put the connector back in, just simply pop it in until it clicks, and cant be pulled out easily. Also make sure you insert it the proper way up, there should be a white marking on the connector and the grey peice itself, the 2 white marking must be pointing the same way. If you have any info you want to add, feel free to do so, its all welcomed... Also, just so this thread can be found easy,here are some common search terms so this thread comes up in the search failed emission failed smog spout pulling spout NOx Hope this helps.
