Not sure if it’s the same method as JK vents, but here is a video on how to remove it with the JK.

Think you got to replace vent panel. I had mine off last weekend to reconnect an ebrake cable that came disconnected installing the lift.

if I remember correctly it’s 2 10mm bolts at the bottom of the console and 2 torx screws under the arm rest. Then it pops out in standard clip fashion.

Thanks Arterius I was hoping that worked but could not feel the clips mentioned in the vid

XJFanatic so you say I don’t need to remove the entire console ? That would be great.

Thanks

Really appreciate the link! My google skills are slacking today. It’s really cool how Jeep people just help other Jeep strangers

I’ll post part# and cost after I fix it.

Thanks again!

mine are always closed. im constantly reaching back there to open the vents for the kids. does this happen to anyone else? i was thinking maybe the bouncing around on the road causes them to close. thinking about figuring out a way to jam something in there to keep them open all the time lol.

Shouldn’t be loose like that.

But I know kids like to kick around back there maybe that’s why it’s always closed?

I always find footprints on the back of the front seat when kids are riding in the rear.

If they are loose I found out they snap together.

Also to remove the panel two screws under armrest then pull. 6 snaps hold it in

Vents come out from back side once panel removed 5 T20 screws. Vents are side specific
