Volkswagen Front Wheel Drive 1974-1989 Repair Guide

Air Conditioner Vents



The ducts are held into the dashboard with barbed clips on the sides of the vent. They can be pried out and pushed in easily. Some may also be secured by screws. Be careful not to damage the dashboard pad. Place a clean rag on the pad and pry carefully with a small prytool. If the pad is dented without breaking the "skin", gently warm the pad with a heat gun and it should regain most of its original shape.
