Photo DIY: Center Vent/Sunglasses Compartment/Lock R/R.

While doing a "Evaporator/Airconditioning Duct" Cleaning with ContraCept Anti-Fungal/Cleaner.... I was looking with a Flashlight to find the holes to snake the tubing down to the Evaporator.... "What the Flum???" There were Two Coins sitting inside the Center Air Vent.

I tried some "Enhanced Interrogation" Techniques with my boys, trying to get a Childhood confession of "Yes Dad... we were playing 'Slot Machine'.." but I could get no Polygraph proof they did it. It had to be them, though.... I can't see any Physical way to jam the coins in there, and get around the Vertical and Horizontal Vent Flaps. Impossible!!

After trying to Fish the coins out, it was apparent there was NO WAY I could get them out.

Well, this would explain the Rattling/Ticking noise in that area, when driving on our poor, rough roads. Between this, and my fear of the stupid things, somehow, falling down into the air box, I opted to surgically Remove the buggers.

Here is the Procedure for R/R the Glove compartment Lock/Opening panel, the Sunglasses Holder Compartment, and the Center Vent.
