Pardon my French but how the #$^%$ do these things release? My hands are battered and they do not move.

Important to slow down and be cool. It is not obvious. And putting them back on is harder and critical. I bent a pin some once and was lucky enough to find it and carefully straighten it with out breaking (I am a Dentist, that helped). If that broke, it's attached to the whole $&(#$ harness.

As he said, there is a black plastic piece that slides sideways. It's really not too bad. Maybe get a mirror and carefully check it out. There is one on each connector (Elige right?)

I would describe it more as a push (to release the retaining lever), rotate (the retaining lever), then pull (the connector). Repeat for the second connector. Do a search for the YouTube video titled "Lotus ECM/ECU Removal Instructions", it makes it very clear.

HTH,
