I did get the hopper off the interlock without breaking the tabs, but it took some work and 4 hands. I used two short flathead screwdrivers. I would pry one side up until it just got to the end of the retaining clip. Then I would pull the hopper taunt and have the wife hold the screwdriver (to make sure the tab did not slip back down) and hold the interlock and hopper. Then I used another screwdriver to gently pry the tab over the other retaining clip and got it to pop off. It took several tries but I did get it off without breaking it. Since it was a loaner, I did not want to damage it in any way. If it were my grinder, after the first hour I would have gotten tired of messing with it and just snap them off.
Thanks guys for all your help and reply.
Need to Zen out and chill before I attempt to do this again. Just don't want to get angry and break the tabs.
Maybe I need to take a shot of scotch before hand.
Dave.. I have to admit when I saw your photos on the TGP, I was so
that I wasn't able to take it off.
Those photos hounded me for weeks knowing that some were in the world there was Kony without that monstrosity of a hopper attached. Yeah I know I have issues....
BTW Hope you feel better & a quick recovery thanks for taking the time to post.
