Air vent removal question...

Got a quick question. I tried searching but couldn't find an answer...

Do I have to remove the entire dash to pull out the air vents? I'm working on modifying one of the vents to use as a mount for my Garmin but before I try to yank the vent out, I want to make sure I don't break any tabs in the back.

Thanks!

Yeah as far as I know they come out from the back, not the front.

The piece you have to remove isn't very hard to remove though, it's just a few screws.

Search for dashboard or dash removal, you'll be taking out the silver screws you see next to the vents.

Here is the diagram of the bolts you need to remove - some of the silver ones are cosmetic only:

How did that install come out? Did you take any photos? Cheers.

dash vent removal....

FYI -- per the above diagram...its very simple to remove the dash vents.... just remove the hex bolts an pull the dash panel out far enough to gain rear clearance...there are 3 plastic clips that need to be disengaged to remove each round vent assy... btw -- 2 of my vents were "broken".... but upon inspection there is a small "dogbone" plastic part that connects the two doors of the vent... the dogbone had become dislodged .... so I simply re-connected the dogbone.... by aligning it and pressing/snapping it back in place.... ...then replaced the vents and all is good again...

I have a broken vent in the back, I found a DODGE dealer on E-bay that sells them for less than 20 each.

The dealer in NC wants $16+tax each.
