Default Removing radio console cover

I can get the console cover off (1995 Pickup KC), and unplug the
hazards and lighter, but I can't unplug the dimmer adjuster. (Need
these off to get to radio slot.) Any suggestions to get this off without
breaking something?

I just pop the dimmer switch right out of the console then unplug it from there.

How does the connector release? Do you squeeze part of it? I tried hard but it was stubborn and I didn't want to break the wires.

There is a lock button that needs to be pressed with a small screw driver while you pull the connector out of the switch.

It's right on the connector itself, you will see it as soon as you pop the switch out the front of the console. It's hidden when the switch is still installed.

It's just a "oops I did that backwards" design by engineers. The plug disconnected like most any others, however, in this case the bit you need to press is on the wrong side not giving you room to get a finger on it. Silly engineering error I think. No reason it can't be on the bottom (6 o'clock) just like the other one.
