'98 Exterior Rear Air vent removal

Recommended Posts

It's fairly straight forward.

1. Find the screw on the trim ring in the upper middle. Remove the screw. Gently but firmly remove the ring, not the grill.

2. Once the ring is off, you then can remove the grill. It has 3 attachment pegs, push each one through it's clip and then you can remove the grill.


3. You will see the snorkel in the hole. Firmly hold it and rock it back and forth while gently pulling. There are no screws used to attach the plastic snorkel. Wear gloves as it is not uncommon to cut yourself when the snorkel breaks free.

4. Assembly is in the reverse order.

Takes 10-15 minutes tops! Good luck!

Here is a DIY project on Renntech, under DIY Projects/Mods in 986 section that provides more information and photos by juniinc.


I would recommend you consider being a contributing member to have full access to the DIY sections of Renntech. You won't be sorry!
