I believe the pot is screwed into the pump body/volute. Lift the complete pump enough to turn the entire pot counter clockwise, to unthread it off of the volute.

Remove the rear motor cover, you will need pliers and a 7/16 open end wrench. The opposite end of the impeller has a shaft that has to be secured by the wrench. The shaft has a notch on each side, it could be behind the two small springs that hold the spinning connection. There is a bigger shaft version that needs just a small end cap taken off and that will expose the shaft to be held and that is a bigger wrench. Once the shaft is secured, you may need pliers to turn off the impeller. Turn counter clockwise. Remember to be careful, it's plastic and well used. Don't forget the seals to put it back together.

I really would need a picture to be more accurate. If you have no way to hold the lid on to get suction, you have to replace the front bowl (pot) as that is where the strainer basket is and how the flow is created. That bowl (pot) unscrews from the front housing. You have to be able to free the suction pipe from the bowl and have enough room to spin the bowl off. You may also have to remove the pressure side pipe if you do not have enough room to turn the bowl (pot) off. If you can not get the bowl off of the front plate, you will have to replace the bowl and front plate all at once.
