Default Electrical connector housing disassembly

OK guys this is what I got. I haven't had one of these apart in awhile and forgot how the terminals come out of this housing. I pulled the yellow lock strip out from under the little plastic leaf springs with the nubs on them. But can't remember if I have to pry the little nub on the leaf spring down out of a hole in the metal terminal? Or if the "catch" is on the top and I have to pry the metal terminal and tab down against the plastic leaf spring and then out the back.

All this AC discussion reminded me my AC fan switch is burnt or worn when I turn it to high speed on the cold side. So I am going to swap it with the medium speed wire and switch position until I can get another control unit. I know it's brittle from desert heat so I didn't want to start prying on it until I was sure which way to go with it. Appreciate the help very much, My old lady was complaining about it last trip we made. I will at least have high and low working this way. never used medium with AC anyhow.

OK got it.... In case anyone takes this style apart, the little leaf springs under the metal terminal pry down to release a nub that sticks up into a hole in the bottom of the metal terminal. Be cautious and be gentle with it or those will break off and there is no way to hold these terminals in the housing without them.

Awww High is back! lol

But as expected, the medium and high positions are now switched on the heater side of the switch. I can deal with that.
