    Very easy mate with the right tools :)

    Rock the lip on the clip backwards gently until you hear a little "click". Repeat for all 4 clips.

    After the connectors are all unclipped, push them off toward the back of the car. You should now be looking at this.

    it always helps to push the connector as if you were refitting them and at the same time pulling the release clip back.
