Disconnect the connector to it if you can and pull it out of the way, a socket with wobblers may help you get past it, or use an offset open-end or box wrench. Just don't yank on the wires, you don't want to compound your problems. If you can get to any mounting clips for the wire harness unscrew those then you might have enough play to push it out of the way.
