Does this vent simply "pop" out? Or does the entire door panel need to be removed? The plastic around it is cracked and missing some parts of it. I have no idea how this was broken anyway.

Anyone know?

Thanks in advance.

I don't think there is a screw at all. I just pulled on mine and it popped off/out. I think it is held in with pressure clips made into the piece. Just pull outward and up. Mine is in poor condition (discolored and loose). I removed mine to diagnose an annoying sound in the door.

I did this last night. It is designed to just pull outward and snap out.

Be warned though!

If yours are the originals and you plan to pull these out you better go buy a new one. Because when you pull this thing even with the lightest pull it shatters into a million pieces.

Its a POS.

I've never seen ANY car with such sorry ass plastics in my life. And I have owned ALOT of cars.

Did you leave your seat belt hanging out and slammed the door shut? That can cause the vent to shatter if it hits the buckle hard.
