Do anyone knows how to do this?

"which connector?


The red ellipse marked ones. I dont think the yellow marked connectors are disconnectable.

I know how to do it barbarian style ...hence not sure what the correct tool is for the job ,,,,,these are a type of clamp connector...if you can visualise a horizontal guillotine which doesn't quite cut all the way that's exactily how these connectors chambers grasp the wire .....so once you pull up the outer plastic shield..held down by small tabs on the sides of the connector it frees the grasp on the wires,,,typically I kinda warm up the plastic mildily and with a large safety pin deactivate the latch tabs which hold the plastic tops down .....

good luck these plastics are so brittle with their age .......most come out easily if I remember ..its been about 8 years since ive been in my d10/110 u20 etc I forget if they all come off or not

I think the the U-20 has a similar connector.
These are called Wire Trap Connectors are are appropriately named :evil:
It's not easily to see how these work at first glance.
Press down on the top using a small flat-blade screwdriver and then pull the cable out.
Here is a link with a diagram showing how to disconnect those @!#%ing cables.
