Disconnecting motor from ESC

Which part of the cables do pull on to disconnect the motors from the ESC? Can someone circle where i am supposed to disconnect it and show me? Or do i just yank it from the socket, where you can see in the first pic?

Do i pull it from the middle, bottom, top?

I thin you need to take the trucks off and take the component case off and diconnect them from inside. don’t just yank on stuff.

I was told i could just yank it right out after i disconnect the trucks

you need to remove the trucks either way. I don’t like the term “yank” I would prefer if you “gently unplug”
