Hi...Greg here. Well the submerged pumps are the trickiest pumps around and it being an audi one it's even more tricky. To get it out you must ensure that you turn the whole pump clockwise to unlock it from the plastic clips that is holding it in there. Be VERY VERY careful with this manouver, chances are if it's never been replaced those plastic brackets can break very easily. So be patient and don't force it. I will come out it just being stubborn. Once you have unlocked it from the bottom brackets pull it straight up and I mean straight up or it will get caught on those stubborn brackets again and break. Good luck and post back. I'll be here. Cheers!
