Separate Mirror From Connector On WJ Auto Dimming Mirror

So hoping one of you WJ guys can help me out.
So before I break something, cause I can't figure it out, can somebody tell me how to get the connector off this mirror?
Got this for $10 shipped off Ebay. I usually see them for $30 or more. Sometimes without a pigtail.
Wish it had more of a pigtail to work with but for $10......
Figure I would play with it and see if I could put it in my XJ.

I recently removed mine, and I believe all I did was press the tab and pull.

That is what I thought but.....
I am assuming press the tab down?
Did you have a little O Ring around the tab on yours?
Cause I do.
Probably just have to manhandle it more then.

So I removed the O Ring, have no idea why it is in there, pushed down and it came out like nothing.
The way I thought it should.
Guessing the O Ring was keeping me from pushing the tab down far enough to release.

EDIT: Which thinking about it more now the O Ring kind of makes sense.
Maybe cause the mirror could get moved around a lot and they did that to keep it from separating.

I don't remember an o-ring. Glad you got it sorted out, though.

@Ralph77 will there be wires in the headliner to hook that up? Is that your plan? Because I was thinking of adding a dimming mirror if II could find one.

If you are talking about in a WJ, which it looks like you own from your profile, I don't know.
I am thinking about trying to put this in my '00 XJ.
I found this awhile back and figured maybe give it a try.
