    I've been thinking about doing this, do the vents from a TT fit easily?

    Click them round to about 2 o clock and you will feel it click lightly. Then using something that wont mark (I used a plastic picnic knife!) put it behind and prise the vent out. The chrome just clicks off but you need to be quite forecful and careful at the same time.

    Not sure how to take them apart, usually the whole unit gets replaced.

    Im sure they must come apart. looks like the gears hold it all together. im going to see if they will prize apart anyway at all.
