OBD Connector Stuck in Port

Hey everyone,

Was coding my F10 M5 tonight, and after finishing up, I'm finding it hard to disconnect the OBD cable. I can't really get a good grip on it and also tried wiggling it. Any other tips for pulling the cable back out? Or should I try pulling harder, I'm afraid of breaking the port.

I had this issue too. After I pulled it out I cut out the little notch it gets caught on. Now it goes in and out really easily.

Pull!! Then cut that notch out of the connector.

I had this issue with my P3 Gauge.
I probably said every curse word in the dictionary while tearing apart my fingers to get that connector out.
