Look for a DIY in the DIY section. I did these recently and followed the instructions I found there. Worked great. I think you needed to angle it upwards and jiggle it out. Either way it really was not that bad once you got the angle correct. Hardest part was removing and reinstalling the cable to the cold/heat dial.
