Remove wire from harness plug?

Hi,

Trying to remove a wire from a connector on a 1972 Cutlass.
It's the plug on the main dash harness that connects to the rear body harness.

Here is a picture of the plug and a view of the connectors inside it. How do I remove the wire? I figure there's a pop-up tab on one or both of the sides but can't seem to depress the tabs to removed.

Thanks

Each connector has a little tang on it to keep if them from coming out backwards. You have to use a small (very small) flat tip screw driver on each one to depress that tang then pull them out one at a time.

Thanks for the quick reply. Once you get it out it's easy to see what's going on.
You need to press the tang on one side and slightly rotate the connector to free the other side.

Here's a picture of the removed connector.

That connector looks as though it has been very busy!
