I'm trying to remove a ribbon cable from a Jenn-Air range control board (the cable that goes to the touchpad control panel). I think it's a ribbon cable - see attached picture. The connector has two tabs one on each end. You're supposed to press the tabs up (which I did) to be able to release the ribbon. I lightly tugged on the cable but it doesn't budge. Do I just need to pull harder? I don't want to break the cable. Or is there something else I need to do to release it?

Thanks for any help.
