I30 2008: unable to pull out the plug from the door lock actuator

There's a tab on the other side of that bumpy bit to push but it's very difficult to get in there to depress. Otherwise you may have to go the long way and remove the external handle and unbolt the latchand pull that out with the inner panel as it sits on the clips attached to that panel. Inner edge of the door there's a plastic cap that reveals an 8mm bolt, that releases the end cap at the handle.

Thanks. 
If it is the tab marked A it is really difficult to push, tried a flat blade and still will not give in.
