Can't see how to separate this one. Little help?

maybe flex the blue up, insert a small flathead under the raised area.

I have a pretty small flathead but it is too wide for that. But I'm about to look for something else. The best look I got of it is when I took this picture.

try from the side, all you have to do is get past the tab on the clear piece. dont go too far though.

I lifted it up from the side. That picture may look big but I didn't see a way in from the top. The side way seemed wrong but it popped out.

Can you push the clear section down so it passes under the lifted blue section.

I belive the clear piece at the back (wire side) of the clear connection needs to be squeezed in to bring the clear block inside of the blue keyhole. You might try using a pair of fine tipped welding clamps to squeeze the pieces in...

When I dismantled the 60, I had to deal with this a few times. IIRC the key is to squeeze the clear piece hard and not to pry up the blue parts.

looks to me like he tried pushing down on the clear tab, notice the damage to it. so I was figuring that maybe the clear part is a solid piece. It looks like the blue is designed to flex.
