Hello, I am new to the forum and this is my first time trying to open my notebook and the reason is so I can replace my old HDD with a new ssd.

I manage to remove few smaller ribbons I just pop clip up and remove them but I am having a problem with this one I am not sure how to safely remove it so I am hoping someone can give me an advice.

I made a photo of it and I will post it if you need more info feel free to ask.
Thanks

I think that connector is designed for the white part to come forward. Try using a spudger to nudge each side of the white piece forward (toward ribbon). It should work forward. Just don't force it.
