    They look like they might be some kind of spring/MF terminals.

    There will be some holding lugs on the connector, they will need to be gently pushed or prised away to release what looks like a male connector.

    Thanks for the advice. Had to leave it out of frustration for a few days but found the lugs - and removing them and with a bit of tugging did the job.
