FIXED NX58H9500WS - Disconnecting Igniter connectors

Our Samsng gas range died (would not heat up), and I soon realized the igniter assemble was not working. Ordered an OEM replacement to match the existing - this has 2 separate connectors, not the single block (see attached). If it was a single block configuration I probably would not even be needing to post this question...

I've dismantled the inside to access and remove the existing igniter, but I cannot figure out how the safely disconnect the 2 connectors! There is no release clip, and the working space is so limited I cannot get both of my arms inside to have one hand holding each side of the connection. One YouTube poster magically with one hand was able to pull them apart, but I haven't been able to do so.

All I'd like to know from anyone who has done this is how did they manage this part of the replacement?

Second question I have is one of the cables has a tag on it - both on the existing and replacement part. Am I to assume that this is the way they are telling you which of the two female connectors to insert the new connector in? THey are identical so maybe it doesn't matter, but with electrical stuff it's usually important which goes where for the power to flow to the device safely.

Thanks in advance!

That's not OEM then, did you get it on amazon? Lots of parts companies there say OEM but its not.

Only OFFICIAL OEM parts from OEM appliance part sites like AppliancePartsPros and RepairClinic, which Always has a 365 day warranty on ALL parts, are TRUE OEM.:)

Here's the OEM oven bake glow bar igniter for your model:
DG94-00520A Assy-Hot Surface Igniter

You can see at AppliancePartsPros is single connector.

Also at RepairClinic as well: https://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Igniter/DG94-00520A/2692271 single connector.
Thanks for the info but I was able to connect the unit exactly as it was when the igniter failed. You have to be a contortionist to access over 3 feet of depth and disconnect and reconnect the new igniter.

Oven is now back to normal and baked a batch of cookies for my assistant :)
Good job.(y)

Thanks for the update!
