    Just lift the red thing up slightly and pull it forward. Then there should be a black button underneath that you push in to release the connector block. You don`t need to remove the green connector.

    This is how I do it and it works everytime. And I`ve done it many times.

    make sure you've disconnected your battery too before doing this... and had it disconnected for around 15 mins

    didnt know if it would but always the safer option... those wires operate your pretentioners (which are a device with a small explosive charge like an airbag but they yank down on your seatbelt to lock it in place when you crash)

    Check you dont have the airbag warning light showing on your dash now as i've seen that happen before from disconnecting parts of the airbag system.

    Just a future warning to remember really... tis always best to disconnect the battery before unplugging/plugging anything electrical in your car... (ever worked on the insides of a computer??)

    Shane I've just done my seats and had to change my pretensioners off my old seats and onto my new ones. The green plug does NOT just pull out of the box, it's held in by a small locking tag. First off remove the red tag and seperate the loom from the black box. The loom won't come out until you remove the red tag. Your picture shows the loom and the seat box still in one piece and it's much easier to remove the green wire when they are seperate. As said make sure the igntion hasn't been on for a while to allow the pretensioners to discharge. When you've got the loom and box seperate slide a thin flat bladed screwdriver into the very small gap between the box and the green wires connector from the loom side. You may have to jiggle the screwdriver a bit in order to release the locking tag, it's one of those connectors that as you push it into place you can hear it locate. Jiggle the screwdriver and keep pressure pulling back on the wires and it will slide out. Once you see the tag you can easily see how it works and the next one is much easier.
