Couple questions about the center console method:

Does the section of vent I need to cut get removed completely or are we just cutting enough to fold it down out of the way?

Do you have to 'repair' the cut vent somehow once your done?

I'm sure it will be clear what to cut once I get the console off. But any additional info would be great.

Thanks guys!!

Here's the original instructions from earlier in the thread. Cut and Fold down. Tape back together afterward, or plastic weld if you don't like tape. I used the blue tape just because it was heavy duty tape that I had on hand. You can find better products. Next one I do, I'll use metal flue tape on the vent doors and black "Gorilla Tape" to put the duct back together.

  3. My foam was COMPLETELY gone, otherwise I would have cleaned the flaps.
  4. Covered the flaps with a heavy duct tape that has a long lasting, thick adhesive.
  5. Tested the operation to make sure nothing was blocked and the tape was secure.
  6. Put it back together and used the same tape to seal the duct.
Relatively quick and painless. YMMV depending on your center console configuration.:dance:
