    I think it's a bit of a tricky job Lee. I'm sure you've got to remove a few things before you can get the little bugger out!

    no mate its a two second job. there are wee clips on it top and bottom. carefully lever the felt bit and pull and it just slides out. you can then see the mechanism on the side that clips it shut.

    I fixed mine with some glue and a paper clip. (was feeling a bit blue peter at the time LOL)
