It's also odd that the hose thing is a vent because the bottom piece, where the cap hooks to, has holes in it that look like they'd let any moisture out. *shrug*
Like i said above, if you pull real hard it will break in your hand with bloody results.
This is normal, they always stick.
If you have room use two screwdrivers like pulling an impeller.
With limited room put an open end wrench just larger than the shaft under it and lever off the roter.
With no room, cover the distributor body with a towel to catch pieces and crack / crush the roter with some large vise grips. Once it cracks it will pop right off.
The wrench under it will normally pop it right off. If it wont budge, bust it off, you are changing it anyway.
