09 Factory iPod adaption removal

I have an 09 WRX and it came with the iPod connection. I am trying to remove it and make the cord longer, however I have hit a roadblock and do not know how to get the lock removed without damaging the cord.

Can anyone help?

In this link it is the piece at the end of the iPod cord

it appears as though you need to remove you center console pocket and un-clip the wire from under the pocket. it may not be much longer than that though.

You cant just plug the ipod into the USB port? on my mother in laws 2012 the head unit talks to her iphone through that USB port just fine. That said her head unit was swapped at the dealership for a pioneer with NAV. If your head unit doesn't talk through that USB port amazon sells extension 30 pin apple connectors, One side clips to your existing cable with a female end, and has a male side for connecting to your ipod on the other.

I know its not really the solution your looking for but they are very easy to use and extremely inexpensive

see the small piece on top of the clip, it should push downward toward the wire slightly to allow the clip to slide into the console pocket, or out of the pocket. im not sure wich direction.
