Replacing OVP Relay On 190E

Last October I purchased a 1989 190E 2.6. The car had been neglected and had no repair receipts. Reading some posts here about cold starting problems, I deceided to replace the OVP relay. If you are familiar with this model, you know that this relay is located behind the battery in an awkward location. I tried, without success, to pull it out with my fingers. So, before I try to pry it out, I would like to know if there are any clips holding it in, or is it held in by the friction of the pins.
I have ordered a new relay and would like to have it in hand before trying to pull out the old one.
Has any one else had this problem?

Silver body red top and tough to remove? Yup thats it!
It may have a screw in one of the mount tabs (8mm head).
Don't pull on the wires!

For my 1987 300 E it was just to be pulled out. It seems stuck at first. No screws for my model.
