All of a sudden air won't pass through the inlet valve from the probe to the air tube. ???????????????
When I try to add air I hear a click and no air will pass. I hope I don't have to disassemble it because I'd have a better chance of getting pregnant than getting that inlet valve unit off the air tube. Any ideas?

For the records, encase others have a hard time removing either end off an air tube I came up with a plan that worked for me.
I wrapped folded fine sand paper, 600 grit in this case, around the air tube. Tightened 4 geared hose clamps around it making sure they lined up to fit in the vise properly. I was prepared to use heat at the end of the degassed tube if necessary but it gave way without it. If the hose clamps are tight the tube won't spin so there will be no sanding damage to the finish.

Now I can disassemble the air fill body and find out why air won't pass through.
