Center vent removal

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to install the Traffic Pro this weekend in my 2004 GT3. I have the antenna installed and I'm trying to fish the antenna lead down to the radio slot. There doesn't appear to be enough room to get the large connector through the small gap beween the dash and the black plastic back of the radio/AC pod, so I'm trying to remove the pod from the dash. I have taken out the center surround, the radio, and the AC but I'll be darned if I can get the center vent to come out. That is preventing me from getting to the screws that hold the rest of the frame and carrier in the dash, so I'm stuck.

Any tips on how to remove the center vent on a 2004? I read the shop manual but it is not very clear. I've been prying in different places with a small screw driver but whereever the clip is, I haven't released it yet because the vent is still solidly in there.

Any help or pics would be appreciated.

Karl

If you have not figured it out yet. The vent is held in with 2 locking clips. You press down on the clips and the vent pulls out. Jeff

Maybe your setup is different, but on my 02 Cab, I removed the radio with the radio removal tool, then taped the antenna lead into a sturdy drinking straw and poked it through the opening. Worked fine. For me that was an accomplishment :). Did need help running the 6 foot wire under the carpet to the center console tho.
