Default Speedometer Wire

I have removed my handlebar and headlight mount and am ready to replace my broken speedometer. My question concerns the red speedometer wire that goes into the rubber grommet on the back of the headlight shell.

Does it just pull out and the new wire just push in???

Or does it require a special tool to slide in alongside the metal lead to depress the prong that sticks out???

I recall that GM wiring harness connections needed a special tool that slid along the wire to depress the prong.

Anyone have a trick way to remove the red wire lead without damaging anything???

Thank you for your help!
