I had to use a punch to knock the rod through the ears. Then pull the washer down off the ears. The rest is obvious.

Good luck. What a lousy design.
I'm gonna chime in and say thanks as well. I have a 26.75" kettle that's only a few months old and one of the One-Touch blades bent upward when it hit a piece of charcoal stuck half way through the exit hole and I need to remove the rig to bend it flat against the bowl for better air control.

Good luck!

Get some expanded metal, and put it on you charcoal grate(if you want you can cut it to fit better)
A bunch of Webers, a UDS and a Happy Cooker!
