I have read all about how to install the vent gauge pod and is hell of a job. :mad:
but I really only wanted to remove the air vent bezels and paint them. Can I just ply them off or do i have to take off everything to get to them? :confused:

A flat head with a cloth. Ugh, I mean that works great in a pinch. But I have marred plastic too many times. Thank you very much for this, as you know it's a really Pita topic. That you can't find anything for. But you can grab one of these tools, for a few bucks or get the whole kit for around $10 to $12 eBay, Amazon or just go to Harbor Freight. It's so worth it, I use it more than I would have ever thought.
