Default 95 Camry door switch

My daughter recently purchased a 95 Camry with 66,000 miles.
I noticed that the dome light only comes on when the front passenger door is
opened. The dome light does not come on when the other 3 doors are opened.

The dome light comes on intermittently if I wiggle on the switch which is
behind a rubber cover. I removed the bolt from the switch and cleaned the
ground connection. Still no go. I then removed the rubber cover and
remounted the switch. It still is intermittent. The other 2 door switches
behave in the same manner.

I concluded that all 3 switches are bad and need replacing. I was going to
switch the good switch from the passenger side over to the driver side so
when she gets in the car at night, the dome light will work for the drivers
door but I can't figure out how to remove the wire from the switch without
breaking it. It looks like it is a right angle quick connect type connector
and I tried pulling it straight up but it won't budge. It looks like the
terminal might have a locking tab on it.
I tried putting a small screwdriver blade in the small rectangular hole in
the side of the switch and pulled up on the terminal but it still won't

Does anyone know how to remove this wire without destroying it?
