Side air vent slats and control wheel change

Recommended Posts

:) I have successfully managed to change over the factory silver slats and silver control wheel from my side air vents into a carbon set and they look great.

After a lot of trial and error using the black slats that came with the CF pair I have a few tips for those of you who may be looking to do the same.

1) The control wheel is easy to swap over.....remove the guide bar that connects the wheel to the lever and simply place it in the new vent , then reconnect the guide bar.......takes a few minutes only.

2) As you look at the vent there is a vertical bar that connects all the slats together - DO NOT UNCLIP THIS FROM ANY OF THE SLATS- get a pair of needle nose pliers and very slightly bend up the slats from one side of the vent and pull out gently until they are all out. Now you have all the slats out and still connected and hanging from the guide bar...............Now simply place them in the correct place in the new vent and use the pliers to bend them slightly up again and pop the back into the new vent.

there is hardly any marks on any of the slats from using the pliers - the factory paint seems to be extremely tough.

the whole process took about 1 hour and I was being extremely careful so if you are already familiar with removing the vents from the car it shouldn't take too long and the result is fantastic......I was amazed at how tightly everything fitted into the new vent and then back into into the car. There are no gaps in the trim surrounding them and they look "factory fitted".
