    I was able to put my hand in there and grab it. It just is a straight push/pull job. You can twist it as well if it is tight.

    the pump is held in with four bolts so it might be just as easy to pull the whole thing. I thought i had to on mine, and did, only to find out i COULD have done it, but removing the pump wasn't hard and mad it easier.
