Default Best way to remove this connector?

Hello everyone-

I was just trying to figure out the best way to remove these style connections on my old Pioneer reciever. I need to remove a few to get the front panel off to replace the power switch.

Because of space I actually pulled the ribbon cable out of one of them, assuming I could re-assemble it later.

These connections have NEVER been removed so I want to be careful with the plastic as it may be brittle.

Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks,

You release the clamping bar at the top (which looks to have been attempted looking at the end slots) by using a small jewellers screwdriver. The wire ribbon should then easily come out. To reassemble just make sure the ribbon is pushed home and then press the clamping bar down until it latches.
