Fuel gauge

I need to remove a WEMA sender (as in photo) from my fuel tank. Does anyone have experience of this job? In particular, what is the best way to apply force to turn it?

I removed one the exact same a few months ago, I use a spanner on the square section at the top, its strong enough. You could use a vice grip or adjustable spanner either.

With my identical WEMA sender I just used a spanner around the top square part. Not sure if that's the approved method or not, thankfully mine wasn't stuck, and it just rotated out nicely!

Thanks to both. I have limited access so cannot get my hand in to even test if it is tight. I am now reassured I can use a spanner so can go ahead.
