Need help with the airbag SDM

I can't get the connector to release from the airbag sensing and diagnostic module (SDM). It's the one that sits behind the ashtray on my 98. I actually have the module unbolted and pulled out but still cannot get it disconnected.
Thanks.

There should be a PSA position assurance clip.
It's usually Orange on GM airbag modules.
A tug pull and it should be free.
May be a slide lock also.

Thanks for the reply.
I've pulled out the PCA.
I just can't find the release to unplug it.
