There are notches that you have to line up by turning it, kind of like a headlight. Then just pull it out. It should be heated with a cooling line wrapping around it, DO NOT unhook these until your truck is cooled down...ask me how I know. There really isn't much room to get at the little bastard, the last time I pulled the coil pack out of the way so I could get back there.
