Are you using a pin remover. There is actually one that helps with fan pins. If you dont have that, you need to use a pin or a needle, with a slightly flat tip. What you do is to push the small tab on the connector down and keep pulling on the corresponding cable. That should do it.

Before pushing the pin in, make sure the cable is all the way into the connector. Then push the small tab and pull the cable.

thanks, got it down after a few fans. pushing the connectors up first helped a lot

Just make sure you do not push/pull too hard. The little tabs break if you are not careful.
Ask me how I know...

Also b4 you put em back just use the pin to pull em up abit as could make them loose.

Also is the yellow wire for tacho/ speed I have linked 4 to a fc and the speed is allover on the display yet one fan on its own is ok.

Take a look at the Fan Sleeving Video Guide, 10 minutes from the start Mike gives a demonstration of depinning fan connectors with an exacto knife.
