Juno60 Panel B won't detach from A (Minerva Mod)


I'm trying to install a Minerva Mod in my Juno60 but am stuck on one of the first steps. Right at the beginning, after opening up the Juno, you're supposed to detach Panel B from Panel A by unplugging the three white connectors that connect the two panels. After unscrewing both panels to have a better grip I managed to get the first one (smaller) out but the two bigger ones will not budge! I got one to move about 2mm but it's stuck there even though I can slide it back with relative ease. The other one will not move at all. I tried lifting them slightly or pushing down softly, even using a small flat screwdriver as leverage will not help. I'm afraid to apply too much pressure as I don't want to mess up the pcb. However I'm already over the limit in terms of how hard I want to pull at things inside this machine. Other guides simply state disconnect them.. am I missing something? Could it just be old and stuck? I had it serviced about 2 years ago but I not sure he lubricated these connectors (why would he).

Any help would be appreciated.
