Little issue with removing headlight assembly.

I tried to remove my headlight assemblies on my facelift 330xi with headlight washers today and I ran into a little problem.

I got the headlight unbolted, wire connectors disconnected and ready to remove.

Then I say two wires going into the assembly that could not be disconnected, or so it seemed.

The wires were connected to the headlight computer(i think that's what it was?)

Has anyone else ran into this and care to shed some light?
