How do I remove the original equipment bilge pump

Hi - how do I remove the original equipment bilge pimp from a 1989 Mastercraft ProStar 190?
The original pump is yellow, I cannot see the brand or make, it is bright yellow and has a sticker on it that says model 2200. it looks like it may be clipped into a plastic base. It won't budge. any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. See picture at http://tumRblr.com/blog/theflyingboykin

Should be clipped into base like you note.

I would just get a RULE (auto pump or float switch model) from Amazon and install it.

Unclip pump, unscrew base, clip wires as appropriate, install new base, connect wires, and mount pump.

The wiring can take some time if you have a float switch wired into the circuit. Tight quarters and all.

Simple job, maybe an hour working slowly.

Jim,
Thank you for your reply. No, My apology for the broken link. The correct link is http://www.tumblr.com/blog/theflyingboykin
My existing pump looks like the second one http://www.wholesalemarine.com/p/MAY-22102/#readmore.

As I said, mine won't budge.
Thanks for your help.

Grab the yellow part and turn it like you would unscrew a light bulb.
