Demister vent

Post by gs.davies »

Putting a feeler out on this - I am missing a demister vent, think it’s the driver side one.

Any leads on one gratefully received.

Preferably metal. And I know as soon as I buy one, my original will show up 😂

I don’t think I can get the screen in until the vents are in either.

It’s possible with a right angled screwdriver, but awkward

As you say thee other will turn up soon enough after buying one !!

I’ll check a bit later on once home

You haven't said if you want one with offset pipe or central?

Well, that's something I hadn't considered, didn't realise there was a difference. The one I am missing is offset. I presume the offset one is the rarer of the breed though I don't suppose it makes any difference once it's hidden from view behind the dash liner.

I think early cars, certainly Mk1 and mk2 are all offset .

Sorry, haven’t been able to find the one I thought I had :(

Plastic ones for Mk1 and 2 are on ebay:

and if you are stuck, want to move on, there are also those 'modern ones' that claim better airflow?
