Not piccing it did not help your cause. Ford uses only like 40 different types of snap-on retainers. Some like the duckbill type require a separate small tool to do it. Tool inserts in to open the clamping spring up to let loose the other side. Tool is cheap and you will destroy that connector before it comes loose not using it.
Do a google search using the words 'transmission line disconnection tool' and get swamped.
Fix the driver first, then fixing the car becomes so much easier..........
