Fragile air vents

Recommended Posts

I've had my 987S for two months now and an incredible 2000 miles. Other than a scratch on the windshield that I whined about in another thread - no problems.

But - in my neverending quest in breaking things - I asked my 14 yo son to dust the interior while I did the outside.... He manged to jimmy the airvents and pop a small fork like clip off the back of the vertical sliders. So now can't adjust the airflow up or down. I managed to snare one clip, the other is down in the vent somewhere. No idea how to pop it back into place.

Now the embarassing part. I asked my kid to show me how he managed to do this to two of the four vents. He said he just wiggled it down and sideways... I said "LIKE THIS" and manged to break another one!

It wasn't forced or jiggled hard or anything just popped off and down the inside of the vent. Anyone else or am I dummy of the year?

Any and all feedback appreciated


Now I've got this in the wrong section! needs to be in the Boxster section, my apologies.

Just remove the air vent and you'll be able to re-clip the rod that broke off. It merely reclips.

Don't know why yours broke easy. You can always bring it in under warranty too. Air vent can be removed by taking out a torx screws on the side. Remove any tabs that may have hidden torx screws.
