Default fuel pump removal from tank

I am replacing a fuel pump on a saturn lw200 and having troble removing the fuel pump from the tank. I removed the ring on the top of the module that holds it to the tank. then i lifted and rotated the the pump and i almost got it all the way out but the sending unit arm is hanging up on the tank hole. i dont want to break this so i am wondering how this is done. Do i have to remove the sending unit inside of the tank or will it come out all in one piece. i searched but didnt find much on this. i see something that says set it in the 1oclock position and tilt 45degrees or something like that. i am confused so if anyone could help it would be great. Thanks

It will come out but it's a very tight fit.

Pull the pump up as far as it will go, and tilt it until the side opposite the sending unit clears the tank lip. Once cleared the sending unit side comes out easily.

Just replaced my fuel pump a couple of weeks ago.

Thanks for the info. I couldn't get my 2002 L200 pump out until I read this!
