Help wiring dc pad! Need quick response please

Hi, I was wondering if I remove the VMU do-hickie thing from the dc pad. Will the pad still work?

The box is too small for the fat vmu+pad.

Need quick respone please.

EDIT: Nevermind, went ahead and took it off. works just fine. So far…

i know you can remove the gray plastic piece, but i’m pretty sure you need to keep the black piece.
