Evening, Noel.
I do not know, but I suspect to be able to extract and hook up the pod to the lever on the air flap, I'll need a bit of elbow room. I do not intend to rivet, but use small screws into the plastic with double-sided foam tape around the perimeter... If you have ever used the tape I am referring to, it would almost be all that is needed to hold the access panel in place. I think 4-6 screws will be more than enough to help hold it, and the foam nature (thin, albeit) will help seal the access panel. I plan on cutting it out in sections to minimize the vertical extent to limit the "bends" necessary, if possible, in the replacement panel.

If you look at John's picture, that pod is pretty big!!!
