Removing connector on cooling fan

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to disconnect the connector for the cooling fan (pictured below) But I just cannot seem to get it off. I tried pushing a screwdriver in but wasn't budging and I dont want to break any tabs. Anyone have any suggestion?

Provided you press down on the black retaining clip they normally come off very easily. You may need to use a screwdriver to press down the clip.

I've pressed down as hard as my fingers can cope and been at it for a good few hours and neither the left or right connector comes off. I tried with screwdriver and the plastic is starting to break

Got the bugger off. Found this video soooo helpful. The connector is held in exactly like this. I wedged a tiny screwdriver in from the opposite side while pressing and pulling and it popped straight out
