Mine's at the dealer's at the moment so I can't look, but usually there's a tab that needs to be either squeezed or lifted (often a flat bladed screwdriver helps), or ears that need to be squeezed together. It's meant to be waterproof so it's putting up a fight!

The service manual doesn't say anything about any special procedure to remove the connections in its headlamp removal guide.

Gazza61 - please don't scatterbomb the forum with multiple similar questions in different places. Why not start a specific topic and describe precisely what you're trying to do

Most modern cars are not user friendly when it comes to changing from one spec to another - IE infotainment systems etc

I would live with what I had and get what I needed on the next car
