TriangleTube Prestige Solo - can't disconnect ignitor cable

Options

Hello guys,
I can't figure out how to disconnect ignitor cable from the top of an ignitor in order to change an ignitor while ignitor is still screwed in. Should I use full forth to pull it out without to be afraid of braking it or there is some kind of trick to disconnect it? There is something underneath of the ignitor cable connector that I tried to squeeze but it did not work too. Should be a simple thing but I cannot figure it out.

Your help will be appreciated.

Regards,
Vad

    Perhaps rotate as you pull? Maybe a picture.

    Sounds like the old style I have. The wire is integrated with the ignitor as one piece. There is a replacement version with a spark plug style cable that can be disconnected. This mates with a different part number ignitor.

    Is it the Trimax LCD control or the MCBA LED control?

    Thank you for replies.
    It is an LED type control. The ignitor was replaced once and I do not know what was the replacement part number. I did not mention that the cable rotates around ignitor. I tried to pull and rotate a bit at the same time with no results as well but I may try one more time since JUGHNE suggest trying it.

    The new ignitor is similar to this one, https://www.supplyhouse.com/Triangle-Tube-PSRKIT15-Ignitor-with-Gasket

    but I do not know whether the old one the same or not. It does not looks like as one piece since it rotates around and the cable looks like an original one, like this below but I cant guarantee.

    I am just thinking maybe just to buy this cable since I cant figure out.

    Suggest having both in hand before continuing. Some do pull off hard.

    Thank you all guys, I will get both, just in case. I also think that I may get ignitor out with the cable together and will try to disconnect while it is out. I will have much more room for doing this.
