I think this is one of the great myths being perpetrated on these boards. You must need gorilla grip to be able to just pinch and remove the original gills/side grilles. I had to employ the risky screwdriver wedging method. And yes I managed to put in a small scratch in my paint.
People reading this: Don't assume you can just pinch and remove the gills.
