Clutch slave "removal"

The slave just comes straight out the back. Your's sounds a little sticky so just give it a good yank. If you aren't replacing it just tie it up out of the way or remove the line and set it aside. 

I believe the connector you are looking for is located on the top side of the tranny near the bell housing/block mating point. I seem to recall tracing the wires from the sensors on the passenger side of the tranny and following them up to where I finally found the connector. I'd actually started to remove the sensors on the tranny before figuring out I just had to unplug the connector and could leave the sensors/wires attached to the tranny.
