The eBay replacement cord wire ends were too short to reach the solder points in a particular 85W supply. [Another genuine Apple 85W has solder points much closer to the strain relief.]
Couldn’t lengthen the wire ends b/c the strain relief was molded to the cord. So, clipped the original wires inside the case and soldered to the replacement cable wires, insulated with heat shrink.
Torn, though… you’d like the wires to be plenty long for soldering/heat shrink, but everything has to fit back inside the case.
On mine, the plastic tab was almost completely hidden under some fabric-like tape on top of connector.
Make sure to grab only the glossy plastic tab and pull it up, which rotates upward a metal hinge on the removable part of the connector. That metal hinge is then used as a handle to pull the connector straight out (flat) toward MagSafe.
I didn’t see the plastic tab, and first pulled up the tape. That caused the metal hinge to pop off. Upon close inspection, it was easy to see where the hinge attached at each end to the top assembly. whew!
I needed to move the bezel away, so disconnected the cable. On reassembly found that the pins had pulled out of the plastic housing. Need to know orientation of the 3 wires in the housing.
