From the blown up picture in the manual. it looks like it just slides out. You may need to heat up the engine case or use a bearing puller. You may also get away with using something from the backside of the engine and pushing it out that way. I haven't personally taken one out yet, so I don't know the exact procedure. Let me know if you need more help.

Not off the top of my head, I would have to take one of my engines apart to figure it out. Have you tried to pry it out with a screw driver? Your only way to get it out may be to use a bearing puller or try to dismantle the bearing and then try to bend the housing so it will come out. Let me know if you absolutely cant get it out and I will tear one of my engines down. I just don't want to do it unless I absolutely have to.
