I Am trying to change the fuel filter on a 2012 outback. I got everything apart (lines removed, cables disconnected and nuts removed on the steel flange)...problem is the steel flange wont clear the body on the rear so I cant get the fuel pump assembly out???? Anyone got any suggestions?

Thanks

Here's what the FSM says - if you use some of these key words to google I'm sure you can find the corresponding PDF with images too:

Fuel pump assembly consists of fuel pump, fuel filter,
fuel chamber and fuel level sensor.
1) Release the fuel pressure. <Ref. to FU(H4SO)-
53, RELEASING OF FUEL PRESSURE, PROCEDURE,
Fuel.>
2) Drain fuel. <Ref. to FU(H4SO)-53, DRAINING
FUEL (WITH SUBARU SELECT MONITOR),
PROCEDURE, Fuel.>
3) Disconnect the ground cable from battery.
4) Remove the rear seat cushion. <Ref. to SE-34,
REMOVAL, Rear Seat.>
5) Remove the clips (A) and seat cushion hooks
(B), and turn over the floor mat (C).
6) Remove the service hole cover.
(1) Disconnect the fuel cord connector (A), and
remove the clip (B).
(2) Remove the screw (C).
(3) Push the grommet (D) down and remove the
service hole cover.
7) Disconnect the connector (A) from fuel pump,
and remove the clip (B) securing the harness.
8) Disconnect the quick connector of fuel delivery

9) Remove the nuts securing the fuel pump upper

plate.
10) Remove the fuel pump assembly from the fuel
tank.
