I have a old PCB board and there are some connectors on it that I would like to use again.
Is there any possible method to remove the connector with plastic parts (say molex 53398-0271) without melting it? The PCB could be destroyed, but would like to save the connector.
The temperature rating for the connector is -40° to +85°C, for molex 53398-0271. So I guess hot air gun would simply melt the connector.
It may be best and most simple to buy a new connector. Just curious if the is possible as it might be handy at times when you just ran out of parts.
