I am in the process of changing my navigation screen, with instructions from another thread here.
But, I've run into an issue that may prove me being as smart as a hoe handle.
How do I disconnect the plug for the multi display, that I've circled in the photo?
I've tried, blindly, pushing and pulling everywhere that I can get my fingers.
Is there a trick to getting this unplugged?
Thank you so much for your help with this.

It helps if you use needle nosed pliers. That connector is a booger to squeeze. The mount that the one end is connected to isnt very sturdy and moves as you try to apply pressure to the release tab.

Once you do get it removed, I suggest filing the tab off for easy removal next time. I've done that and it presents no problems.

Thank you everyone.
I broke my index finger about a year ago, so putting a lot of pressure isn't the easiest.
I'll try the needle nose pliers.
At least I know I was trying the correct place.
Thanks again.

I release the tab with a very small straight screw driver from the left side. I am a reasonably strong guy but could not release it using my fingers either.

I had to use needle nose pliers on it, and most of the other electrical connections.
I have the new screen installed, and in the process of reassembling the bike.
I took, what I thought were good notes, plenty of photos during disassembly, and still pick up a part,
and realize it should have gone on before the last part I put back on.
But, it's been like that on every bike I have ever worked on.
Thanks again for all the help.

For the ones that want to do it in a way that does not harm or modify a Wing, I suggest learning how to release the connector correctly. Releasing it correctly will more likely make the connector last a Wing's lifetime, as well as making the connection of the male/female more secure and reliable.
