Question Disconnecting rear hub ABS

I've ordered a replacement wheel bearing hub (making humming noise after 202,000kms), I've had a look at what i have to do and clean off road dirt, but the ABS connector won't come off and I afraid to apply too much force and break the connector.
I got the first part of the connector undone, the flap which unclips on the sides and then pivots away 90 degrees. It's the next (and last I think) part that is not moving, I felt with my thumb and finger for a release tab to squeeze and pull at the same time and the connector should come away, but it's not. I've sprayed WD40 onto it to soak. Am I missing something? How does the ABS connector come off? I hope it's not corroded on. I searched for abs info but found no threads describing the connector removal.
Any advice is much appreciated.

Brilliant!, thanks for the link. I ran outside and had a peek under the beast, I can see where I unclip the connector.
My autoparts shop rang today, the replacement hub is in, it's a generic one for 100 (got it for trade price) compared to 253 from the Toyota dealer.

Arrrgh! Wrong bearing hub.... mounting plate has 10mm threaded holes, my one had smooth 12mm holes plus when I measured up the contact surface with the verniers, thats different too. I bet the supplier picked up the wrong year???? off the shelf and shipped it to my autoparts shop. So it has to be returned and try again.
Removal of the hub was quite easy, the link in the earlier post was fab, I got the abs connector off very easily, brake drum off and after removing the mounting plate 12mm OD bolts x4, I used 2x 16mmOD 5inch long full threaded bolts with big flat washers and nuts through the opes in the wheel rotor to push the hub away from the backing plate gradually towards me. So hopefully I'll be able to get the correct new hub in the next few days and remember to take photographs to post here.

Good news, correct bearing hub (generic €145) arrived today and I fitted it in my friend's garage. I was a bit short for time so I didn't take any photos. Took about 20mins to do.

Thanks for the advice, it helped with those awkward fiddly bits.
