I cant get the cap off of my gas tank to take the fuel pump out, how do I get the fuel pump out?

Relieve the fuel pressure at the pump switch located in the passenger compartment under the carpet of the transmission hump on the passenger side. Remove the fuel tank. Turn the lock ring counterclockwise until it's loose and remove the lock ring. Pull the fuel pump/sending unit from the tank being careful not to bend the arm for the sending unit float. Discard the old lock ring seal. Installation is reverse of removal with the following additions: (a)Apply a coat of heavy grease to the new lock ring seal to hold it in place during assembly. Install the seal in the lock ring groove. (b)Install the fuel sender/pump unit into the fuel tank so that the tabs of the unit are positioned into the slots in the fuel tank. Make sure to keep the seal in place during installation until the lock ring has been tightened properly. (c)Hold the fuel sender/pump unit in place, install and tighten the locking ring clockwise until the stop is against the retainer ring tab. - Mazda Pickups Repair Manual
