Hi, I would like to move my BT MK3 socket off the main wall into a small cabinet. This means I would have to disconnect the wiring, pull it back into the cabinet (through the small hole shown below) and then rewire.
My query was - how do I disconnect the orange and blue wiring shown below? I couldn't see an obvious way to do this. Is there a particular knack with a screwdriver (I don't have a punchdown tool) ? Thanks!
Solved! Go to Solution.
the cables just pull out but better with the IDC tool rather than screwdriver when you replace them
If you must use a screwdriver, use a very thin bladed one or all you will do is splay the contacts so the wires don't make proper contact.
then you should be posting on SKY forum not BT retail
thanks for the replies.
I am with Sky for broadband and phone
Then why are you posting on a BT retail customer forum?
It would be best to ignore any advice given here, as its likely to result in Sky raising a charge if you do it wrong. BT would not be responsible if that happens.
Try the Sky forum http://www.skyuser.co.uk/forum/
the socket is openreach not BT retail. SKY have as much contact with openreach as do BT Retail of any other ISP
you cannot delete the thread now
this seemed the best place to find information, hence my request. I guess it was from more of a DIY point of view. I'm quite happy doing general DIY but just wanted to see if there was an easy trick to getting the small incoming wires off and back on again.
