      Basically the recommendation is to treat this as a non-reusable part and replace it any time you have to remove it. Its circuits and wire traces are very prone to getting brittle from heat cycles, and they often go bad without anyone even touching them. At $30 for a new one, just plan to replace it when you change the valvebody.

      Have to agree, even if you can get it out without breaking it, it likely will down the line very shortly after.

      Can somebody describe to me any possible symptoms of a damaged valve body ribbon cable? I'm in the process of diagnosing issues with my 2001 Cab. Thanks in advance!

      ^ is nowhere near as fragile as the ribbon.
