The sending unit has 2 spade terminals and the wires have the common mating female terminals. A pair of needle nose pliers would help ensure to pull on the terminal and not the wires. Mine came off fairly easy but had visible corrosion on closer inspection.
I used a small wire brush and a very small puck / flat screwdriver to scrape inside the closed female terminals. A conductive grease, oxyguard or copper antisieze should help contact and reduce future corrosion. Just don't use too much as it could bridge the contacts.
