I thought I would allow you to learn from my mistakes (I did it on my skutt).
Do not be overly efficient with your movements. I just started clipping off the wires from the elements with reckless abandon.
Unless you have a perfect memory, this is a bad strategy.
Take one element off at a time and rewire it. Otherwise you'll be spending quality time with the wiring diagram.
Overall it wasn't a difficult process once I got bast my bonehead mistake.
