Default 01 Bonneville SSEi DRL disable

I have seen all the talk about removing the relay and making a jumper. I have 2 questions...

1. How do you remove the relay? I started to pull on it and it does not want to give like a fuse does. I don't want to damage it (i just bought it a week ago) so I need to be sure what I'm doing.

2. Does anyone who has had this procedure done on their car have a pic of the finished work? I would like to see what it should look like on someone who made it work.

Thanks in advance guys! I had a 97 Grand Prix and have finally made the jump to supercharged and LOVE IT! I just don't want to mess up the most expensive car I have ever owned a mere week into ownership. Thanks again!

The relays are kind of stiff when removing from the sockets. You will have to fabricate a small jumper to place in the socket that the DRL relay just vacated. Be advised that you will lose the DRL function of perimeter lighting after you accomplish this mod. Insert the jumper between terminals 30 & 87a in the relay socket. To locate the positions of terminals 30 & 87a, look at the silkscreen schematic on the side of the relay and transpose so to speak into the socket. Good luck with it.

Thanks Mark! I was wondering if the relay just pulled out or if there was some other trick to it. I think I'll give it a go this weekend!

I wonder if you guys could get the stalk from an aurora to change the way your lights work? On the Aurora you have AUTO, ON, PARKING, OFF on the stalk. the bonneville only has AUTO, ON, PARKING. I can turn my lights off at night while driving if I switch the stalk to off. I can also drive around whenever with only the parking lights on if I want, and no DRL'*. the foglight switch is also on the same stalk closer to the steering wheel with front+rear, front only, off.
