How to Remove Connector


above pic of same housing
Hi all Ė

(I didnít know if this should be posted here or on the Car repair forum.)

Iím trying to get a connector off this dome light housing in my car. Seems like something is wrong here. I press really hard with a screwdriver on the point shown in the picture, while pulling from the top of the connector. Doesnít seem to budge.

I donít seem to see any movement at all when pushing in with the screwdriver at the red rectangle. Like itís jammed or something. I wonder why it is painted red in the first place. The pic without the connector is a pic I found for reference of the same dome housing without a connector.

Seems like Iím doing something wrong.

If anyone can give me a sanity check it would be greatly appreciated.

Try pressing the white tab just north (straight up in the photo) of what you point to.
