The connector is kinda odd.....in the way it holds the wires. You'll probably look at it and wonder how the cables are put in there. If you look carefully at the whole unit, it opens up like a clam....there's a place to put a screwdriver in and pry the thing open. Any OTHER attempt at trying to open the thing or trying to pull the sockets out will ruin the holder.
First, you grab the whole socket while against the car and turn....that releases just the wire holder half. Then look for the place to pry that holder apart. Make sure the factory ties that hold the cable bundle stay within the red marks on the cables....important.
