This was the toughest in my case also.

What you need to do is pull the tab outward, then pull it down. Just pulling it down is not going to work. It is clamped securely at the lip of the FSR. The tab is quite stiff so I improvised a tool to pull the tab out before pulling it out.

Here's a photo of the tab. Look how it is clamped-in to the FSR:


Here's a photo of the tool I improvised. It acts as a fulcrum. Push it in and pull the tab down:


It took me a while to get it out but it worked.
