Replacing the factory-installed filter in a Nikon 200-400mm VR II lens

I recently purchased a 200-400mm VR II lens and want to substitute a Heliopan UV Haze filter for the Nikon NC filter that came with the lens.  However, I cannot get the NC filter unscrewed!  I finally resorted to the careful use of some pump pliers but still couldn't get the lens to budge.  Any ideas on how to unstick the filter without damaging the filter holder would be very much appreciated.  Thanks.
