Angry Help identifying, removing and replacing green module!

Hey everyone,
I recently bought a trustfire waterproof, but my cat knocked it off the table so the optics got all messed up, and it had a big line through it (not just stuff on the lens, but a crack or something). It still worked (but dimmer), that is until recently when the soldering job on the driver to diode gave out when I screwed it in wrong or something today. Anyway, I wanted to replace the module with a better one, like a 100mW o-like or something, but I have 2 problems:
1: I have no idea what the module type is, it's a little bit thinner than an aixiz (like barely thinner), and the front is even thinner than the module and threaded and the lens appears to be adjustable with a flat head. And the now torn sticker on it (the part that was visible) said something like "233/0" scrawled on it in pen, with chinese writing and "mW" visible, but the mW appeared to be on its own (no number next to it), probably because the rest of the sticker was hidden.
2: You may be wondering why the rest of the sticker was hidden, and this is because as you can see the module is crooked in the little heatsink/retaining ring it is stuck in to. This also keeps it from fitting in the host snugly. It doesn't appear to be threaded in there, but I can't figure out how to get it off. Maybe a hammer?

So anyway guys, if you have any questions then ask, but I need help removing this module, getting a new one and then installing that.

Thanks,
will

The green module with driver on it appears to be the same as the green laser modules from OLike or other stores. I would link to OLike or Rayfoss but both websites seem to be down right now.

Your host looks pretty beat up though. If you can't figure out how to get your previous green module back into the host then you probably wouldn't be able to replace it with a new one.

Maybe look around for a new host... Ehgehmus makes some awesome hosts for green laser modules. He puts them up in the BST thread a lot.

thanks,
Kendall

Yeah you might have to press that out, then the other in. It maybe more work than its worth.

the only part of the host that has a problem is the small heatsink, the rest is flawless. I'm not going to give up a great host just because something is stuck in it. As soon as o-like comes back up I'll look for that module.

EDIT: I think I'm going to just put in an aixiz with a rckstr and 2xCR2, as after forcing the green module out of the small heatsink with a massive grinding of metal and flying projectiles, I found that it almost perfectly fit an aixiz. A tiny bit big, but that can be fixed with a tiny bit of thermal grease. I will also drill out the threadings in the upper heatsink. This could end up being even cooler than I intended. I've wanted a waterproof blu-ray!
