Default Replacing a female connector in a relay junction box

I found the problem with my AC.
It was a broken wire leading into the relay junction box.
The wire is too short to strip and repair so I need to solder a new length of wire on to the female connector.

Does anyone know how to remove the female connector from the junction box?
It is loose and wiggles around but I can't seem to get it to release.

Any input is always appreciated

Here is a pic of the part.

I'm not sure man, but it looks like you MIGHT be able to stick a small flat head screwdriver inside each socket and release the wire. Then you could pull them all up and just clip and repair the bad one? IDK, I'm not a mechanic. Just guessing by looking.

Thanks for the reply

That is exactly what I did, except I used the flat side of a small cotter pin. I pushed the lock tab down from the back of the connector and then from the center of the connector. The connector is then removed up through the box.
I just finished the job now.

I soldered new wire on to the connector and used heat shrink to make it tight.
The connector pops back into the box easy and secure.

I reinstalled the wiring and now my rad fan comes on and stays on, on low speed when the AC is switched on.
Unfortunately I still have no cold air blowing.
Going to keep at.

Thanks to all who helped out.
This forum is the best.

Congrats on the fix. Sorry to hear you still don't have a/c. Are you sure that you have a full charge in it? Mine gets so cold, that I sometimes have to turn it up. If I don't my glasses steam up as soon as I stop the car and get out. And my wife constantly complains that it's too cold. She closes her vents and I raise the temp as a compromise.
