Anyone know how to remove the windshield wiper fluid reservoir?

I'm trying to install brake ducts with the 2013 and I'm stuck. The inlet tube is aimed *straight* at the windshield wiper fluid reservoir, and I can't seem to get around it.

Anyone know how to remove the reservoir? I can see three bolts... but I'm not sure how to disconnect the fluid line from the pump (?) in the side of the reservoir. I tried the "kinda pull hard" and it didn't pop off.
 
Thanks Jimmy.

I ended up pulling the pump outwards to unclip it from the reservoir, then pulled upwards. Note to others.. have a bucket ready :)

With the pump separated from the reservoir, it came out pretty easily with three screws.

It was much easier to install the hose with the reservoir removed... then I was able to bend the hose and tuck the reservoir back up into place.

I found it to be an unacceptable trade-off on routing of the cooling duct, so off it stays and a -8 lbs forward of the front wheel to boot. :)
