    I have Techstream codes suggesting problems with my left and right rear speed sensors.

    In the hope it is something simple, like some corrosion in the connectors, I am trying to disconnect and inspect.

    I am trying to pull the connector loose but neither will budge. I am wary of pulling or prying too hard in case I damage them.

    Does anyone have any experience of this, and is there a specific technique? Or should I just pull harder?

    Thank you!

    is there a clip on the side? maybe try pliers on both sides and wiggling?

    I believe the retainer on those may be designed to be worked with a screwdriver. Check the manual ....
