It's easy for me to say sitting here with my glass of wine but I would crack on and change it. Sounds like you are already half way there and the weather isn't too bad at the moment. If it fails totally in rainy November you will regret not cracking on!

It's probably never been changed and the alloy corrosion has built up around where it fits and welded itself in. Spray the join with lots of WD40 or penetrating oil and leave it overnight. I'm sure it will pop out no problem tomorrow morning with fresh hands and new enthusiasm
