you should be able to get a smaller tip for ur desoldering iron pretty cheap, or just use some desoldering wick, u should be able to get some for cheap at a hardware store, or radio shack maybe. If you cant get that i just used copper stranded wire, u just press it on the holes u want desoldered and press the soldering iron on top of it, when the solder melts the wire sucks it up. the wick works the same way but better.

i bought mine at radio shack...its just a little rubber ball that you squeeze and hold up to the solder, heat it, and when you let go it sucks the solder out. It worked great for my ecu. I think it was like $4.

the hand held solder vacuum thing is the best i have found so far. just put it in a vice and solder one side and suck the other.
