    Once you have removed the threaded fitting where the fluid comes out, the housing should slide off - but will give you some resistance.
    I always get the pump that comes with a plastic reservoir included. That save me from trying to slide the old one off, evenly so as to avoid breaking it. You will need a new pair of "o" ring seals when you assemble the reservoir to a different pump.
