    passenger dashboard vent

    Vent has disconnected from housing. Is there a way to reconnect without taking apart the dashboard?
    Thanks in advance.

    Can you not get at it by popping off your side plates to your dash and then popping loose the silver trim strip that goes across the dash horizontally? If you open your door and look on the side of the dash, unscrew and pop off the piece. Then you will have access to the screws that hold on the silver dash strip. The silver strip comes off pretty easy with a little gusto but sounds like you just need to undo the screws on the far side of the dash for the silver strip and get to the vent behind it. I've had mine off several times doing stereo work and such. It's not full access to the venting but, it does remove the air director and get you to the actual piping behind it, sort of

    Just a thought, hope you get it!

    merc* has it exactly right. while really simple and less than five minutes to do, if you have any questions or need images, your FSM has the detailed directions and photos last time i scanned through quickly. use it, it's your friend!
