Rear AC Vent removal

I bought a replacement rear AC vent as mine had a broken tab but cant figure out how to get it off. I'd assume I start by getting the silver rings off, but how? the replacement vent came with 2 extra screws?

WOOHOO! ALLDATA FTW!!! here's the procedure:

1. remove the flat panel that faces the rear seats (underneath the rear vents) by pulling OUTWARD it from the bottom to release the 2 lower clips, then, from the upper portion of the panel, pull UPWARD to release the 2 upper clips. 4 CLIPS TOTAL

2. remove the 2 side panels (parts with silver rings). there is one clip (accessible with thin flathead) on the top part of the silver ring. the other 2 clips are lower on the interior colored panel. 3 CLIPS TOTAL PER SIDE

3. removing the vent: there is 1 small screw on each side near the bottom of the vent, remove this screw from each side. at the top of the vent, there are 6 clips/tabs, undo them. lastly, the vent has a hook shaped railing on the bottom, unhinge that and remove. 2 SCREWS, 6 TABS AND THE HOOKED BOTTOM

How much was the part? Do you have a part #? Where did you get it?

Thanks,

AJF

Try oemacuraparts.com under console.



Part 31 costs between $26.49 and $29.19 depending on the interior color.

Jacob King - Thanks you! I just fixed one of the rear vents (the adjustment lever had "popped out"). There's no way I could have figured it out without your instructions.

Anytime the front vents are on, the rear ones can be too. There is an adjustment lever between the rear vents. Almost certainly it's closed, that's why there is no air from them. Move the lever to the UP position and see if that works.

Sorry to revive this but is their a way to just get the little clip that moves them up and down/ side to side and not the whole assembly? Mine came apart and the bottom piece is missing

I cannot remove flat panel "by pulling OUTWARD it from the bottom to release the 2 lower clips", it doesn't come off. I feel its going to break if I try harder. Any suggestions? Thanks!
