Can't disconnect D connector

I am trying to install fog lights in my new JCR bumper. Old bumper had no lights.

I am stuck at the point where I need to Disconnect the D Connector under the TIPM unit. I slid the red tab down but can not get the connector off. Is there another release tab or other trick or do I need to just pull harder?

Any help would be great.

Haven't done that one, specifically, but if it's like other harnesses you probably have to squeeze a clip or an indent in the plug before you can pull the two ends apart...

I could be completely wrong. Electricity hates me.

Hahaha...I don't know why I though tin foil would fix the short.
