    Not sure what dials you refer to. Do you mean the vents, or the control dials? Could you elaborate on your plans?

    Sorry, I have no experience with pulling it out.

    The service manual references it (see item #6) but I can't seem to find any disassembly instructions.


    Sorry I don't have more useful information for you. Let us know what you find, and perhaps explain why you wish to remove this.

    Yea... Those were mine. You don't remove the vents. The carbon fiber pieces get double stick taped over the front of the vents. What are you trying to do?

    Look at the pics here.
    Look at this on eBay http://www.ebay.com/itm/172157977829

    hehe just an update on this. Actually you can pry on the sides of it using a pry tool or something flat. just be careful because it has a small bearing in there which you can see once lifted.
