How To Disconnect Hard Top Wire Harness?

Of course I searched, but got the beloved blank white screen again. Can anyone explain how in the heck to disconnect the wire harness to the rear of the hardtop, please?

Thanks!
Tommy

There is a red little 'switch'. It slides to the side to release the harness. Royal PITA. Now when I put my hardtop back on I do not click the switch to 'lock' it on.

Thanks. I've looked and didn't see anything red. Some small grey tabs among the wires, but that's it. Where is this switch?

Yours might be grey. I have an 04 vs your 01, so they could of changed it because of frusterated people like yourself. Although when I took mine off for the first time it didn't help that it was red, I still didn't get it and it was still a PITA.

The switch is on the actual plug.

So they need to be slid to the side before the plug can come out?

I'm lost! I pulled out the three grey pins, but that's all they were.....pins. Obviously I still can't remove the plug. Is this red thing on the side, top, bottom, driver's side, rear, etc? In what direction does it slide?

Thanks,
Tommy

my switch was way up in the housing the first time i took my hardtop off. i had to reach up into it w/ a pair of needle nose pliers to get it, made a click when i got it and then the thing just came right off

and of course it didn't get locked when i put it back on, if i need it to hold better i'll just wrap it in some duct tape

So where would I look for it? I can't see it anywhere... Do you mean it's recessed within the plug where the wires go into it? I just don't see where this elusive switch/lever thing is!

idk if yours is any different than mine but on my 98 i just had to depress the plastic in and under the raised part of it and pull. at first i couldnt get it out for the life of me and thought i was doin it wrong but it just needs to be pulled really hard. put some muscle into it and it should come right out.
