After you remove the one screw, gently twist the reservoir side-to-side and the clips should come free of the support.

yes, it has that little rubber mount and pin and you have to work it out towards the rear of the engine.

Tilt the 'back' of it up and out like it hinges on the bolt you just took out. It will come out.
