2000 4.0 can't remove the fuel pressure regulator!!

Hello I am having trouble removing the fuel pressure regulator (what my finger is on). I have tried prying on it, but it won't pop up and from what I've read you can replace just that part and not the whole pump. The reason is that it's leaking and I can get it welded so it doesn't leak instead of buying a whole new piece.

The fuel pressure regulator is only held in place by two small o-rings. Pop it out with a pair of big flat-bladed screwdrivers positioned under both sides of the FPR.

I just did that job about 6 weeks ago, jerry is explaining the way it worked for me, it was tough but it did work. The part that sucks is that it didn't fix my problem but good luck

Thanks jerry and jsmart, I popped it off and got it welded up. My problem was I didn't want to pry on it as hard as possible incase that wasn't the correct way. It was successful but very hard to pry off. I'm glad I dont have to buy a whole new piece.
