Is this like a 3" in diameter "sausage" with fittings on each end or a cartridge type where it needs to be parted in the middle?


it has a boat near the filter a little the pipe that goes into it and then another boat on the end

cannot grip it to put a wrench without breaking it? is it glass? if you've got the cartridge is a matter of disassembly, then...really wish I could come and help you, but get a solid grip with a big channel locks if necessary~ there is a "spring" what holds the cap on? I can invision...think you must slide this spring cap aside ~?
