Re: GTV Dash Air-vent Removal?
Bit late I know but the vents are just meant to pull out......Ha Fing HA. I had to try and remove mine and broke one out of three before leaving the rest alone.
They are just clipped in but the clips are so strong the will not give enough for removal. What I found was the twisty bit pulls out first (not meant to come out) and the little ball joint at the end of the shaft by the flap snaps/bursts.
This then makes it easier to get the right bit out but by then the damage is done.
PS if your new one is loose please note I discovered there is a sprung bar about 1cm which pushes against the rotating part of the vent and gives you the click click feel as you turn it. Could this have fallen out?....mine did!
Mines a shoggy....whats YOURS?
