For my 9800pro when i removed the stock HSF you just push those fittings through the hole with like a pen or something then pull it right off. The resistence you are feeling could be caused by the thermal paste sticking. I also have the 9200 and it's the same thing. Maybe turn the card on and and let it run a little hot to maybe loosen up the paste?
