Power steering pump reservoir

So I broke the plastic nipple off the bottom of the power steering pump, the pump itself is good, just the reservoir is broken, what does it take to pull the reservoir off the pump and replace it? I know it's possible since autozone sells the reservoir alone, but I cant quite figure it out.

They do just sell the reservoir. Iirc there's a clip then it pops straight up.

Have you ever had feelings for a nun??? "Nacho Libre"

Update on this issue. So I had the truck running a little bit before I replaced the pump, ran fine. I got my tax return and decided to just replace the whole pump, so that came in and I replaced it, all went well, filled it and went to start the truck, it cranked, fired up, ran for a minute then died. After that, it cranks fine (except for when I kill the batteries from cranking it) but wont fire at all. Had a friend over to look at it, he checked the HPOP Res level and the oil rail levels, topped them off and said it looked like I might have a little air in there. He tried to bleed them, to no avail, then I had to close up shop to run errands. Haven't looked at it since 2 days ago, went to crank today, still just cranking no firing. I'm just completely stumped now. Not sure what to do, tired of seeing it sit in my driveway. Anyway, hoping you guys have some suggestions or ideas as to why its not starting. Fuel pressure is fine, pulled the filter and its getting plenty of fuel in there. I'm not seeing any smoke out my tailpipe when cranking though which leads me to believe its not burning any fuel. I'm just frustrated and want to get it running again. Thanks
