Is there anyway to remove the PCB without having to un-soldiering it from the wiring harness plug?

hell, soldering two wires together cleanly is hard enough.

There's another write up floating around that explains that because of the mechanical action the solder can crack on the two biggest contacts on the board. When I did mine I cleaned the contact and laid some fresh solder on them to be safe.

I actually enjoy soldering, I've been a soldering fool on this Focus. haha

i don't really mind it. i have been using a lot of solder and electrical connects here lately.
i've light up my floor boards, cup holders, entire hatch area and hardwired a phone charger to a couple holder.
burned the f### out of my hand too.

One thing about this writeup is that I found it unnecessary to desolder the motor. I just took it out with the board.
