Remove MC4 Housing

I need to remove the MC4 connector housing without damaging the pin. The housing "snaps" on to the pin. Anyone know how to get the housing off without damaging the pin?

A long time ago when I did some wiring for rs-232, there was a special tool for removing pins from a connector. In a pinch, we used a pair of needle nose, so I will give that a try while I wait for someone to tell me the correct way to do it.

I guess worse case, I get the housing off and have to buy a couple of pins.

This will be difficult. It might be easier to cut it off and crimp on a new one. As I recall that is what I did.
