Default Changing brick from Vapor to Ember2

While flying Ember2 outside ,after a rain shower, water got onto the brick and "shorted" a circuit on the rudder servo. Some smoke came out and the servo goes full left ONLY. I have two Vapors and want to replace the "shorted" brick with one from a good Vapor. It is NOT clear how to release the servo rods without bending them beyond use. The "brick" slides into some rails on the mount but, some "goop" holds it in. What is it?? Any help is appreciated!!

The best way I have found is to unhook the linkage at the rear of the plane(ele+rudder) then they will release easily. The other option is to twist the pushrod some and that should release the wire from the CF. Be careful when you do the swap, the brick will go in clocked 180* out.

I need to solder a new servo on my vapor brick
