    Default Central air vent flap

    Can anyone tell me how to remove the cover holding the 2 central air vents and goes over the trip computer screen?
    One of the flaps has come loose and it looks like the only way to get at it is to remove the cover and try to repair from the rear.
    I don't want to start prising at it and end up breaking something.

    Open glove box, pull off silver strip across the dashboard (it just pulls off) and there's four torx screws holding the air vent in underneath it. The bottom vent on all the vents has a much thinner bit of plastic on it for some reason and is very prone to snapping, you can repair it in various ways, I melted the plastic back together with a soldering iron and then melted a bit more fresh plastic over it to make it thicker on mine.

    Thanks for the info Highlander! Got it to bits but couldn't effect a repair. Will try to get one from a scrapper. If anyone has one let me know. It's the one on the passeger side of the centre console and has the identification 'R' molded in it.
