View Full Version : WTB: 95 e36 center vent and lighter

09-25-2004, 02:03 AM
Here is anohter shout out to you all to see if i can find these 2 items that i want. I'm looking for a center vent (the one that would be above the original tape deck) and a cigarette lighter. As for the center vent, it needs to be the one with the cable, not the cord. The cable is blue, and the cord is black.

how do you take the center vent out so I can check?

you first must take out your tape deck (or whatever you have replaced it with). Then there are 2 screws which hold the vent in place. Remove them, and pull the vent out. Be careful, because there is a plastic lip on the upper left edge of the vent, it can break. The cable is pretty short, so you won't have a lot of room, but you will be able to see it running from the back of the tempreature control dial back behind your instrument cluster. I believe that it will be blue if it is the cable, and black if it is the cord (the cord is electrical). I believe that you can also remove your instrument cluster and see the cable that way.

I do have a cigarette lighter too.. as I replaced mine with a start-engine button.
I'll pull out the vent for you this weekend as the parts car is a distance away from me and take pics of it for you.
