As per thread header. The cardboard corrugated heating pipe has become detached from the back of the vent, how do I get the vent off, and reattach the pipe and stuff it all back in the hole in the skirting board?

TIA!!

Russ

Still dropping clangers and making it up as I go along
Mine came off but could unscrew the panel to easily get to it it was fiddly but I got it done .what you need to becareful of is not detaching either the other end or a t joint

Absolute beginners.
The vent aperture pulls the hose up against the back of the panel it sits in. If as in this case the back of the panel, and hose is accessible as Lenny says, pop some self tappers in to stop it backing off again. Mine are all acccessible, to a greater or lessor degree. No access would be a proper PIA, if the hose dropped off the vent.

I don't think you will....the vent will be a tight fit in the hole THEN the hose is refitted from behind the panel.
If the hose fitted the vent then pushed in the vent would flop about in the hole.
Possibly, some very thin fishing line top and bottom of the vent used to keep it pulled uptight to the back of the panel whilst the vent is screwed into the hose, tricky but doable.

I’ve decided to cut a hole in the floor of the cabinet that’s above this pipe work with my multi tool. Join it all back together and drop the panel onto a couple of thin metal support plates like you do with cut floorboards at home. Thanks for your help and suggestions! Cheers! Russ

And the bonus .....it's get at-able if it comes off again.
