MSI uninstall log says:
Allowing uninstallation of shared component: {754103E6-08B4-51CD-9855-51469047119F}. Other clients exist, but installed to a different location

Apparently you have another product installed that references the same component. 
The file can be removed since other products have a different key path.
The service however, can only be uninstalled when the last client (=product) that references the component is removed.
