Hello, I'm Chris. Welcome and thanks for asking your question!

I am unsure which connector you are having trouble with, is it the one below.


Customer: replied 4 years ago.

yes, that looks like it; tried to on lever tab in middle but it won't move.

Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 4 years ago.

This lever needs to move the full distance to the right to unlock. Often road grime gets in there and makes it hard to move. A shot of WD 40 around the connector and lock sometimes will help out. Also gentle tapping on the connector hitting it in the direction to seat it harder using a rubber hammer or the wooden handle of a hammer will help. Once the lever is all the way to the other side, wiggle the connector to walk it off.
