removing OVP relay

Hi I have a new OVP relay for my 87 300e to put in. But I cant seem to find out how to remove the old one. There doesnt seem to be any bolts attached to it. When I pull on it it wiggles but it wont come out. There are a bunch of wires attached to it underneath. Does anyone know how to remove it?

On the w126, there is a single bolt on the side. The OPV sits in a small side bracket so you have to move it out of that. Then yank it out. The electrical connections at the bottom are the only thing that holds on at that point. I assume you are at the "yank that sucker out of there" point.
