While recently replacing the radiator fan assembly (driver side), for some reason the connector plug was especially hard to disconnect. I had to use some long pliers to push the tab down to disconnect the male & female connectors, which think may have scratched the exterior of the male connector (below).

I found what seems to be the same connector for sale on eBay. Is there any way to replace this connector without cutting & splicing the wiring? Or is the only way to cut the wires & perform some electrical surgery?

For reference, the new radiator fan assembly works fine so far, it's just the connector looks a bit scratched.

look up YouTube videos on “de-pinning automotive electrical connectors”.

There is a way to release the sockets so they can be pulled out the back, then installed in a new connector.
Thanks, do you know of any tutorials to specifically de/re-pin this type of connector? None of the YouTube videos that came up show this specific connector.

Looking at the picture, it looks like there is some sort of flat part (near the center), that can be pushed aside to slide the wire out?
