Default Air Intake Grill

On our 93 WB the air intake grill on the curbside above the door that opens to the primus boilers somehow slipped out of position, noticed it after we had parked and was so glad that it didn't fall out all the way. My question is how to get this reinstalled. Tried on Sunday with no luck, do I need to take the trim ring off. I am just afraid of messing up the paint. Any pointers would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Bruce,
Does it have 4 Allen wrench "screws" on the flange around it? If so those are adjustable cam locks. You loosen as normal until the tension on the cam (or pin in this case I believe) is reduced enough so the cam rotates out of it's engagement point. You remove all 4, reposition the panel andthen retighten all of them until snug. You will probably slightly crack the paint around each "screw", but it shouldn't be too noticeable.

Thanks for information.
I will double check tonight but when I was looking at them they just looked like philips screws.

The ones on the grill over my radiator kind of did too, until I looked at them close. Then it was apparent the paint had distorted the hole type.

John,

We went by the Bird last night and they are philips head screws so that will be this weekends project to see if we can get the trim ring and insert the grill as we trying to head out the following Saturday for some R&R. We do have some touch up paint just in case.

Bruce,
I looked at mine tonight and I have phillips screws on that particular cover too. I'll bet it won't damage things too badly. Just make sure you get a real well fitting phillips as that will stress the paint the least.
