The little lever on the end of the defroster door broke off. Ive been sticking a plastic makeshift rod to stick down the defroster vent to open the door when I need the defroster. I bought the new lever but my problem is how do I get at it and how do I get the old lever out of the housing? Is there an easy way to get at it without twisting my body into a pretzel ?

I removed my front seat, real quick and easy. I was able to screw a sheet rock screw into the old lever, grab it with some vice grips and wiggle and pull. It eventually came out. Install was much easier.
