    Air vent removal

    Can someone please tell me how the air vent on the drivers side comes out?

    I want to replace it as the previous owner clamped something on it and damaged the vent.

    Does it just pull out or do I need to unbolt something to get to it.

    Many thanks

    Tony

    No screws or anything. Pop the fuse box cover off (the half-circle) at the end of the dashboard - if you look, there's a little rectangular cut out near the bottom that your car key can go in and wedge it out. After that, you can get your hand in behind it and push it out... if your vent is illuminated, don't forget to disconnect it first.
