Use a little bit of WD40. Then if that doesn't work, you can use a long thin piece of wood to push on it.

benzmac, thanks...
the retainer ring is really stubborn. it wont move even with the wd40. now, the thin piece of wood, do i use this to turn the retainer ring? I understand that the retainer ring should be turned counter clockwise...is this correct?

thx again

just managed to remove the retainer ring by using the handles of a plier to grab onto the ears of the retainer ring as a leverage in turning it...so, DW40 plus pliers did the trick....

thanks again...
