    You can pop that clip off and take the burner out like all of the others.

    I always carry a short 7/16" x 3/8" box wrench to work on gas controls. It gets into tight spots pretty easily.

    Don't you just love doing favors! It always works out so well. My wife has a habit of volunteering my services at no cost to her friends. At the end of the day the only dirty one is me.

    Just in case you aren't aware, Once you take that clip off, you have to lift up on the back of that burner tube to slide it back, off of the orifice.
