I'm able to see a small detent in the receptecal part of the new replacement alternator. This detent is probably holding the connector in place.

    You need to keep working at it. There is nothing holding the connector into the alternator but the tab. Good luck

    Thanks for your input. I'll continue to gently work on it . will give it a shot of non conductive cleaner lubricant to see if that will help.
