The picture that okney1lz has posted is the correct one. If you remove the nut and washer, the solenoid coil will slide right off. There is nothing visible holding down the solenoid shaft into the pedestal. The only thing holding it in is the two o-rings that seal it (I just took my old one apart). Here's how I removed it: Remove the coil. I put a tubing wrench over the shaft and replaced the nut. Using the wrench as a pry bar on the top of the pedestal (protect the top of the pedestal with a rag), it popped right out. Very simple. Cheers!
