Pretty much the title. The car is a Volkswagen Golf Variant and was built in 2014. This image is of the left tail light, behind the cover. I can't seem to get the holder for the power cord loose. The hole above the cord was where the bolt to keep the light in place sat.

. enter image description here

I tried pushing and pulling the red button, pushing the black top down, there is no room to twist the bulb sideways and the power cord doesn't extend beyond the hole. I tried loosening the cord so it was longer but couldn't without forcing it. I would like to make sure I'm not doing something wrong before forcing the cord or the holder. Most tutorials go over clipping it off quickly and I can't figure out how they do it.

    Slide the red tab out but do not remove, now you can depress the release tab. – Moab Oct 1 '19 at 18:49

    Welcome to Motor Vehicle Maintenance & Repair! As Moab said, with the addition of, the release tab he's talking about is just behind the red tab. Press it down and wiggle the connector ... it shouldn't be too hard to remove it. – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Oct 1 '19 at 20:21
