If you are certain
the retaining bolt and clamp have been removed it could be corroded or stuck at the bottom - usually a gentle rocking motion frees it up - if still jammed try pouring some luke-warm water round its base but not too much so it soaks everything. You'll probably have to slide it slightly sideways to lift it out.
