From the orientation of the photo, top right there is a tab that needs to be pushed in while wiggling the connector and pulling apart at the same time, it will be a pain in the butt as it will have a few years of dirt build up to fight you. Persistence is key.
Just make sure that tab is pushed down as much as possible.

If you can, a squirt of silicone lubricant along with a wipedown with isopropyl alcohol can help. As Grum said, grime and dirt can seieze the mechanism, but with enough tenacity it will come free.
