I have a rattling fan in my laptop. I want to replace it by myself because I feel like it's an easy thing to do. The problem is that I can't unplug the connector of the fan on the motherboard.

Here are some pictures of the connector:

It seems that all I need to do is pull, but when I tried, it just wouldn't come out. I'm scared that if I used too much strength it'll rip the cables off.

What tool would help me unplug it without ruining anything?

Thanks.

It seems like the connector is glued.

Don't pull the cable. Get a small flat screw driver and mildly pry it open in the corners.
