When it first happened to me, I bought a new one. when it happened again, I banged it out. Either way it happens, i recommend a skid plate. whatever you do, make sure you get the one peice gasket rather than the 4-peice cork one, its alot easier and they tell me theyre reusable (although i havent tried that). they do cost 30 bucks however
