Trying to remove the Di2 cable from my shifter with no luck. It's impossible to get the little removal tool in there and I'm not going to just yank on the cord. Any tips or suggestions?

There is a little tap that faces in or out from the inner part of the shifter body. It helps line up the plug to go in straight. Use a tiny flat head or, if you have access, a tiny reverse spaner/cir clip tool to pop it loose. Like the rest of the connections, it's a very 'solid' and sealed connection.

The tool that came with your group has two ends. One is a round end used for pushing the plugs in the other is a U shaped piece made for removing the plugs. If you take one side of the U and slip it into the hole that is in the shifter door the tool becomes a pry bar and just pushes the plug back and out. It's similar to how it works with the other plugs, but only uses one fork instead of both.
