It sounds like you've got the box loose, but if not check www.urs4.com,
under technical, HVAC, is a write up by yours truely on getting the box
loose by making up a little leverage tool that hooks onto a flange on the
front bottom of the box. This is for an S4, and I know the 200's don't have
a strut brace to use as a leverage point, but it may apply to your case. HTH
