I have a rattle in the dash of my 04 996 that comes from the side a/c vents. I tried to remove the air vent pod but could not remove it. Does anyone know how to remove the air vent pod?

Thanks

Side A/C vents are each held by 3 torx screws (2 visible, 1 concealed). The passenger side concealed screw is easily accessed by prying off the "rosette" grill next to the vent. The driver's side requires removing the light switch knob. Push a very small screwdriver upward into the small hole underneath (at the 6 o'clock position) and pull off at the same time. The screw hole is angled toward the right at the 3 o'clock position.

Hope this helps.

I removed the 3 screws, but the pod still would not come out. Are there clips that also hold it in place and if so what direction do you pull to get it out?

If the three screws are out, you just have to wiggle it to get it out. Don't pull too far as the light switch wires are short!
