The grommets that hold the side covers sure are tight. I can see why they crack upon removal. Anybody ever try some kind of lubricant on the grommets? I was thinking maybe a little silicone lube like they use on swimming pool equipment. Or K-Y yuk yuk.:lol:

That's actually an issue with all of the plastic side covers, the CM 400/450 series break off one tab because of the sticking and a whole one is becoming a rare thing. I use waterproof grease on mine to relieve that problem.

Try using some plumbers grease ( available at Ace Hardware ) it might also help soften up the grommets as well. OR, just buy new grommets.
