MSI GT62VR GPU fan isn't working

May 15, 2018
What the title reads. The fan was working normally until about two weeks ago, when it began behaving weirdly. The GPU fan completely stopped working a few days before writing this post.

I have a replacement fan arriving soon but it's rather difficult to remove the current fan's plug from the motherboard (by hand anyway). Is there another way to unplug the fan without damaging anything?

Model: MSI GT62VR Dominator-240
