Ok, where the vents are, there are two clips on the bottom and two on top. Is that the clips? I don't see buttons on the sides. I guess I'm a tard or something. Damn, guess just gonna rip them biotches out! LOL

Well I managed to get the drivers and passenger vents out, the whole housing. No my prob is getting the damn dash pad off. I can't get to the bolts behind them? Suggestions without taking out the dash? Of should I just paint the dash pad while it's on and slip in my black vents?

Oh boy...........me and my bright ideas.

Well, I can't get the dash pad off so I'm trying to pull the vent housing out of the dash pad area. Anyone been successful with that. I have black vents to put in and I can just paint the existing dash pad. What a chore. Least painting the other stuff was a cinch!
