It was also a chore to disconnect the sensor connector, since I didn't want to break the plastic snap. I gently used a standart flat head screw driver to wedge the connector apart, and off it came.
For future reference: Almost all electrical connectors in the Fiero have a latch that has to be released before you can de-mate the connector halves. A few connectors even have a locking pin that has to be removed before you can release the latch. A small flat-blade screwdriver is usually the tool of choice for releasing the latch, and you are wise to go slowly and carefully to avoid breaking the old and brittle latch and/or connector housings.
When re-mating connectors I highly recommend applying a small amount of purpose-specific (i.e. electronic) dielectric grease to the connector halves to help protect the pins from heat, fretting, and corrosion.
