Calling all DIY PCIII Installers...I need help !!!

So I'm trying to get the damn throttle bodies off and I have to disconnect the PCIII from that big Brown connector. I totally forgot how to get the damn plug out...I've tried everything short of ripping it off. Anyone remember or recently install a PCIII that can tell me the secret to removing the big Brown plug ? What a PITA...I have an '06 BTW.

I believe the tab u need to depress is on the bottom of the brown plug.

yes the tab on the brown plug is underneath..
look closely and you can see something like a slot on the tab..
just insert a screwdriver in it and pull up, and at the same time pull the plug out.

Now I'm starting to feel inept...'cause I can't get either of those fuckers off.
Here are pics of both...the brown plug on the fuel rail and the other plugged into the other end of the PCIII harness. Tell me what the hell I'm doing wrong. You can see my screwdriver pulling down on the other plug and that bugger doesn't budge. I'm scared of pulling one of the little wires out.

Insert the tip of the screwdriver on that slot that I put a circle on.
Pull it UP with the screwdriver while pulling the plug out.

Well alright...I finally got both damn plugs out. They were tighter than a virgins pussy on prom night. Thanks a ton....I wrote down the way to get them off now so I should be good to go. After this I'll probably just remember...what a PITA.

!! I was just rerouting some wires after installing my speedohealer last night, and I wanted to tuck the PCIII wires in nice and tight, I bet I spent 5 minutes before I got them off, and pulling the two apart up top sucked, man were they tight. I ended up getting the tab undone just a little, then prying them apart from the middle with a tiny straight blade. Glad ya got her worked apart, I wish I coulda helped at the time.

At its core, the Ninja ZX-10R is a motorcycle built for the accomplished rider who can fully appreciate its capabilities--whether put to the test at a racetrack, or merely the focus of bench-racing conversation. It is, by all standards, the embodiment of the ultimate superbike.

grab a pointy object like a screw and push in on that tab as yourself or a friend kungfu grips the plug and pulls. fairly easy after the first time.
