Removing Thermostat W124

Am currently in the process of slowly replacing the head gasket on my 94 e220 Coupe W124.

Having a slight problem in removing the Thermostat housing though......

Have removed all the bolts attaching onto the front timing cover but yet still cannot remove, it looks like the housing slides into the cover somehow.

Has anyone any tips ? I'm sure i'm probably overlooking something really obvious but am currently stumped.

Cheers

It should come off after removing the three bolts,maybe it's just silicone holding it in
