How to get the power connector off the of HVAC fan?

I watched a youtube video on it. Looked easy.

Mine will not come off. I think it is stuck.

Last attempt to get it resulted in short (saw sparks).

Any ideas before I disconnect the car battery and cut the wiring harness off?

Get a flashlight and see why its getting held up. Usually those squeeze connectors won't let each side flex enough to remove, might need a pick to get the tabs around the lock.

But probably should disconnect the battery anyway if you managed to get sparks doing it

Already tried that.

I even used a small screwdriver to push down where the plastic clip would hold. Still nothing on ether side.

Here is a pic of the connector. I am about 90% sure I should cut if off. Pulled fuse 88 to cut the power.

I just saw on my 2nd pic that there is a burned area near inside of the connector.

Off to find my cutting pliers and electrical tape. Now I need to find the PN of the connector. Damn me too.

I can predict what happened, check out brutalsnax's post:

Right now I need the part number of the connector. I wont test or order the resistor or blower until I get the power connection fixed.
