The connector is tricky as balls. I took the grey piece out and still could not get it out-So I wiggled it back and fourth for about 5 minutes and it slowly, but surely came off. You can clean the throttle body with that connector on it just makes it kinda difficult-Its amazing how much more throttle response you get after cleaning it.
