That's what I'm sayin! What a pain! It is most definitely secured with something... In sitting in front if it giving it hell right now. But I can't hold and twist both ends so maybe ill try with help later... I can't even get a wiggle out of it tho....

I would buy/borrow a PVC

Then gently unscrew the bulkhead adapter and replace all with new. If you are not comfortable doing it maybe you could find someone to lend a hand to limit the chance of damage.
I'm not very comfortable but I'm the only one with the slightest idea what's goin in within 2 hours of me.... New PVC
