Hello. If the "tongue" that sticks out of the grill is the one that broken off all you need is a wire hanger or a long angled pick to grab the arm and pull it towards you. This is extremely common failure and all hope is not lost. It is easy to pull you just need to grab the correct spot with a wire hanger. Give it a try and let me know. I'll help you with this. Lou
