    How do I remove the air fin assembly from vent?

    I broke the little knob off, and the lil gears on the inside are now bouncing around, and are probably in my fan unit..


    How can I remove the vent? Its circular, so it wont just pull out..

    Do I have to remove my entire dash?!

    It pops out. I know you're going to hate hearing this, but you just have to force it. Wrap a rag around a flathead screwdriver and have at it.

    we both are talking actual fins, right? not just the sliver retainer ring..

    i yanked on the actual vents for an hour and they didnt seem to wanna pop out at all.

    Retainer has to come out first!

    thats half the battle, after that, the fins are still stuck in a global shaped pipe, and the fin looks to be bigger than the opening.. so i dunno if it would come out by pulling, physics wont allow it.
