Air vent broken, help!

The fan vent to the right of the steering wheel is broken. I can move it up and down but I can't slide the vent left or right to change the air flow direction. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Cool

Go to the junkyard and get a replacement. Those just pop out of the radio trim ring.

Hey try this

You can try to pry it up on the right side, on an angle and see if you can straighten it out it had happened to me once , and thats how i fixed it good luck. Billy

I agree they'll probably be almost free at the junkyard

Does it kill people these days to investigate the problem? Its so simple how it operates, take it apart and look at the little piece that connects the center vent where the slider is to the rest.

Sorry, I just thought it would save time, and the risk breaking it, to ask here first.

So how do I pry it out? It won't budge when I try......

you literally just pry it out gently from one side. easier to pry from the middle piece that divides the 2 center vents. i have no idea what your doing to not get it out.

Thanks for the help! I don't know why it was so hard to get the vent out (probably me just being an idiot) but I finally got the vent out and found the prongs had just popped off.
