the manual simply says free the strainer from the frame and replace.

i have pulled pushed and all varriants in between .

which way do i have to go to get this thing off.

The frame tab to mount the fuel filter has little ears on the top of it to prevent the rubber mount from sliding up and off by itself. The rubber mount must be tilted and pushed up at the same time to clear the tabs. If the rubber fuel filter band is old and hardened it will probably split before it gives enough to clear the tabs.
