Why are you doing that? Seems like an extra step. I just release the pressure from the valve on the fuel rail. Not that much gas comes out and it doesn't hurt anything.

You have to pull REALLY hard. Those relays are little buggers to get out. Wiggle it a little while pulling on it. . . . I think I'm starting to get into the offensive

What he said will do it. I used a pair of pliers to get mine out.
