    Remove the screw on the bottom, and remove the face. Take an xacto knife and shave a hair off the piece of plastic/flashing that sticks out on the rod the face pegs into. I recently purchased a Soar from a fellow member here and discovered the replacement face that came with my Grinder has a tighter tolerance than the default face. It got stuck in an odd position and it was a pain to get back off. I managed to nick the replacement face on the nose in the process of removing it, despite my best efforts not to. Thankfully it's on the smirk side of the face which I probably will never display, but it was still really annoying to have happen.

    Unscrew from the bottom and remove the face. Get a 5mm drill bit (I think 5 is right but I don’t remember) then BY HAND gently work the drill bit through the gap. This will shave a teenie amount of plastic out and should ease your trouble.

    I picked up the regular Grinder earlier this week. Finally had a chance to open him up and wow! What an impressive figure! I was perfectly fine with old MP08, but the shop I was in had him for a helluva good price. So glad I got him! Now to start tracking down the rest of the Dinobots...
