How do i go about desoldering this component from a PCB?

Eric H asked:

I'm trying to desolder a component from a board, the only problem is that the component has an outer metal housing that is soldered to the board and the metal dissipates the heat so I cant melt the solder. i have a 40 watt weller iron, desoldering braid, and a vacuum pump. How am i supposed to get this off?
