Vent Wheel Removal

Its pretty simple & the method is the same for both the faulty & functional roller wheel.

First you unclip the adjuster arm from the flap control arm ( simply pops out )

then you will have to prise the side of the roller wheel support to one side ( with care on the bit of dash your fixing, the replacement unit can be done a little more agressively should it be required )

now while prising the side, move the roller wheel out towards the side in order to release the inner fixing point of the roller wheel.

Making sure not to allow the inner fixing back inplace prise just enough to allow the outer fixing to come loose ( this is the thinner of the 2 fixings which is why i left it till last )
