There are two of these connectors on the backside of the Instrument Cluster (towards the front of the car). Notice the little black tap which holds the white lever in the locked position.
Depress the black tab, and pull the white lever away from the center of the cluster.
As the lever is pulled down, the plug is ejected from the cluster.
Looking into the Instrument Cluster cavity
Notice the two plugs, the plug on the left side has its locking lever in the released position, the plug on the right side has the lever in the locked position. There is a little tab that is depressed in order to slide the lever out of the locked position.

Notice the 7 lamp icons molded into the center-bottom recess of the Cluster. The "Exterior lamp failure" bulb is the middle of the 3 lamp cluster on the left side. Mine has a piece of square white tape covering the socket, but it's easier to spot in photo #341.

Notice the bulb spot that has a square piece of white tape over the hole. This is the location for the "Exterior lamp failure" bulb. I removed the bulb to end the annoyance of a false failure signal due to the lower power consumption of LED bulbs such as LED Parking Lights and/or Brake Lights.
