JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE SENSOR PROBLEM

2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee • 88,000 miles

I have a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.7L V8. It is showing Code P0340 Camshaft Position Sensor.
Often when I drive it three or four miles and turn off the engine and try to restart it, it will turn over long and hard but will not start. After about 15 or 20 minutes, it will start. I am in the process of replacing the camshaft position sensor and have removed it from the engine but cannot after working for and hour or so, get the electrical connection loose from the camshaft position sensor.

Can you tell me how to remove the electrical connection wire housing from the camshaft position sensor?

It is a squeeze clip type lock. So there is a spot to squeeze the connector to unlock it and then pull it off the sensor.
