There is the plastic cover you take off by turniong the little handle deal and pulling. Then disconnect the plug carefully. Then take off the four nuts with a 8mm socket. Then just push from the inside and pop them out.

if they have never been taken out before than they might be very snug in there, so a decent push is needed, but make sure you have all the nuts and bolts out.

I just took mine out, they were very tight probably like yours. I gave the bolts a little tap being careful not to bend the bolts and then they will get loose.
