As long as the bolts are removed, it should just pull free. Mine was a bear too, as it had rusted to the firewall and was glued on, maybe same for yours? I gave it a hail mary with a prybar and it popped off. YMMV.

Perfect time for a BFH.

Sadly, I spent $90 in HD gift cards this weekend and still don't have a BFH.
