OK, OK, I've been reading this thread for months off and on and shaking my head about all you bleeders. HOW MUCH WARNING DO YOU NEED!!!!
I went in slowly and carefully and examined the lower edge that is supposed to be sharp. The way mine was cut, it had an edge, but not razor sharp, so I carefully covered it in duct tape. I then felt around carefully on top and didn't find any more offensive edges. So I went to work prying and mashing on the grey foam block, which was more than stubborn. After a particularly valuable session (upper body workout), I pulled my bare
left hand out and, you guessed it. COVERED IN BLOOD!!!!!!!
It actually didn't hurt that much, but on reexamination of the possible suspects, I think I tangled with the exposed screw tip that is holding the whole AC vent fascia in place. After taping that over and putting on a pair of mechanic's gloves, I went back to work.
I couldn't remove the foam, just used a section of steel rod to push it to the left. I could then see the famous black wire which practically fell out into my hand. It was twisted around the harness, so I pulled it out to full length of about 6", electrical tape on the end per Tim, aimed it as straight up as possible and taped it in place with Gorilla tape.
It seems to work quite a bit better, but can't tell just how much until I get to a larger area.
