97 side vents

Recommended Posts

before you say so, I have searched on the replacement side vents and found the one I needed - the cayman vent swap thread.

I am keen to do this too - has anyone actually done it and does anyone have any tips on removing the side vents without breaking anything - the other post made it look too easy...any tips?

(i can't paste the link for some reason, sorry!)

Its easier to refit the tang from the vent than to replace the vent. I have replaced a vent and its a real pain to do. There are 4 tag springs inside the vent that need to be levered up to allow the vent to be released from the dash. Two require a lever from the front of the vent and two require a lever from the rear. I struggled for two hours to ge the vent out , after the vent was removed the slider was almost destroyed as I needed two pairs of screwdrivers and some bespoke levers to lift the clips on the vent. I've some pictures of the vent if anyone is interested , the problem is that the access to the clips is very difficult especially from the front.
