Try spraying it all around with WD40 or similar, if not tap it sideways with
a mallet to try to shift it.  It that fails, take the filler plug out the top
of the housing.  You can then get a bar or peice of wood in there to lever it 

One thing not to try to do is get a screwdriver or anything in the join and 
lever it off - you risk damaging the mating faces that way.  

Good luck.
