      Removing SD45 front vents.

      Has anyone removed the front vents on an SD45? I think the frame on each side of the vent is metal (green arrows), and I'm guessing it is pressed into the body. Before I wreck something trying to remove it, I'm hoping somebody knows a little more then I do.

      Some of the Aristo stuff have tabs that are bent over in the shell. You would see that. I have not worked on these.

      The front intake grilles are brass, and have three small tabs on either vertical segment. The tabs are not bent over, simply pushed in. I remove them with an Xacto #11 on the back side and gently work it into the corners of both horizontal edges. Patience will garner and undamaged grille.
