im sorry but that doesnt help much. any one else have any ideas?
It's not a matter of ideas. Any one of us could just look at it and find a way out and that's what you're going to have to do. There is no magic bullet here. It's going to come out either the top or the bottom and if you still can't figure it out, then you are just going to have to remove whatever is in your way even though the manufacturer says it's not necessary.
