Airvent Flow Adjustment Roller Fix
|How long does this take?||????|
Approx Fitting Time
5 minutes per roller + removal of dashboard if required
Working Side Vent Unit ( the easy ones to get are the side vent units as they just pull out )
Here's piccy to illustrate the fault & also what casues the fault to occur.
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 )
Fitting New Vent Wheel
To refit the replacement vent wheel is a doddle.
Just line it up suitably in the dash console
Push it into place till it clicks inplace
Test for correct function & stopping etc.
Re-connect the adjuster lever to the flaps control arm ( it should just snap into place )
Re-test for correct function
Job done :L
