Jewelers flat tip screw drivers (plural) will be required.

One to lift the holding tab and one to lift the female spade connector a little when you pull back on the wire.

Quite often ppl will shove the small screwdriver from the back to lift the holding tab. I personally attack it from the front.

I never understood why people came at them from the back.

0.7mm flathead precision screwdriver will depin any Honda plug. And go from the front, the clip holding the connector should be between the two arches, hope that makes sense. Also, there are a few threads out there that walk you through how to depin different connectors.

Thanks guys! I was able to get it through the center, with a filed down took that I made from wiper blade metal.... I pushed up the clip, slid the wire right out.
