The relay can be severely frozen in place, so a few days before you plan on working on it, start with the penetrating oil, PB Blaster, or whatever you use.
Then, there's nothing to it, just a hard go. You might get lucky and have it slide right up, and if so, you're a bum. Took me an hour of fashioning a puller. I took the center of the realy out (Be Carefull) and used a piece of 3/4" threaded rod to make a puller.

Put the oil in after you get the new one in.

log burner,
Yeah, as Terry mentions, if you have to disassemble the thing, be careful because there is a large spring on the inside of the unit. But, IMO, penetrating oil and patience are the keys to getting this thing out if it's stuck.
