Default Removal of Anti-Lock brake sensor in rear differential on 1991 Toyota4x4 pickup

My rear differential is leaking around the anti-lock brake sensor on
my 1991 Toyota 4x4 pickup. I removed the one bolt that secures the
sensor into the top of the differential and the sensor turns freely
but will not pull out. I tried gently prying and it still won't come
out. I'm assuming there is an o-ring seal on the sensor but I'd like
to know if there is a trick to its removal. I can't find any
documentation on the sensor in the factory manual or my Hanes manual.
Toyota doesn't stock the sensor for me to take a look at it to see if
it has an alignment tab or something else that could be preventing it
from coming out. They also do not show a separate part number for a
seal. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I guess you have probably got it out by now, but on my 4runner the
senors plastic casing had swollen by heating so it was difficult to pull
it out. I went and bought a new one so I new what I was dealing with. My
main concern was not dropping crap inside the diff.
