Here is what I do...lube it with a little soap and water...set the kill switch so that the engine can't start. Bump the starter and the impeller will usually move out a little. Then I use two long, thin flat blade screwdrivers to pry it out....a little at a time.

Others have used can openers instead of screw drivers.

Also, if you use anything to lubricate the impeller, make sure to get it off before storage. I always throw it away and replace it annually.

good luck!

Just for clarity's sake, he's talking about paint can openers.

Spray some WD-40 in the pump housing, turn the motor over a few times and grab the impeller with a pair of channel locks and it will slip right out.
