I have 2 individual fans blowing on the radiator and I can't for the life of me figure out how to pull the plug out of the bottom of either one electrical plug and I don't want you rip it out. The wiring is not long enough for me to pull it up to see! The job was going great up until now.. I'm trying to replace my radiator and I've never done it before.
Do you
have the same problem?

Good morning,

I attached a picture for you to view. On the bottom of the connector is a tab that must be depressed to release the connector. The problem is you cannot see it. You have to feel it. You could use a mirror to view the tab before trying.

Thank you very much, but I don't get it. Is the picture telling me I just have to pull the one plug because there in line? And still how do I pull it out when it's stuck tight and there's no room?

No, it shows you how it goes. The lock is under the connector but is not shown in the picture.

Unfortunately, you need small hands to get to the connectors.
