I have a 2000 mercury cougar and I am replacing the fuel pump I have got the lock ring off the tank. Down inside the tank is the pump inside a white plastic sending unit housing. How do you release that housing from the tank is there a trick to releasing it?

That is what I am looking at I am trying to get the whole module out I beleive the pump has a filter sock on it so I assume I have to pull the whole module to get the pump out of the housing?

Tried that maybe a little more force didn't want to break it it must just have a twist lock collar down in there I can't see?
