It's probably just 'glued' with pop syrup residue. You could try removing the posts and soaking the top of the keg in hot water for a few minutes (with the lid off so the water hits both sides of the o-rings).

Try wiggling the tube from inside the keg. Soaking will probably git er dun, though.

I'd soak in some hot water and whatever you use for cleaning (like oxyclean or whatever).
