Access into dash air-conditioning piping

Recommended Posts

I have dropped a small socket into the dash though the windscreen defogger vent. How could I get it out/where would it end up? Thanks a065392130c489dea8e64ed371212c73.jpg this is the vent it went in

I think you can drop the glove box to access the air box. Just slide out the two pins in the rear that don't let the glovebox droop all the way when open. I believe the arbox is just behind.

If it's gone down one of those vents you'll have to take your centre vents out. Undo the four screws holding the centre console on. Underneath that there are three screws holding the centre air vents. Remove by pulling straight back then you'll have room to get your hand in there to hopefully get it with a magnet. Some Phillips head screwdriver tips are magnetic.

That's cool, I'd like to see how you go with the boost gauge, I have the same engine with intercooler too.
