You are now obligated to specify what you managed to get stuck in there!


Seriously, I managed to chip a very portion of the edge when I was trying to get mine off. The little peice that keeps the vent blades moving in unison pryed off while using an XM Roady2 vent clip.

I ended up going to radio shack and bought some curved locking forcepts and was able to get it back on the blades without removing the vent.

It appears there are 4 little plastic tabs that have to be pried open to get it out. I gave up, maybe Tech can enlighten us on how to get that damn thing out.

That is exactly what happened to me - Exactly. But, I didn't think anyone would know what the heck I was talking about.

Anyway, I tried the personal tweezers to get the dealy on the back of the fins and that didn't work. I will look for something else.

OSUxc90,

Did you get the longer one that allows you to lock the forcepts closed like a little vise?

I bought these at my local radio shack...you can see them online at their website. Worked perfect.
