Centre Console Air Vent Removal? Help!

I have recently got myself a Punto mk2 '03 and have noticed that a 'direction fin'? inside the middle right vent has fallen off inside

I tried to get in there with some pliars but to no avail. Is there any way of taking that part of the unit out so that I can get the piece that has fallen behind? I haven't been able to find any info elsewhere

Here's a pic to show where I mean:

Well that's why I thought it might be better going in from the front end rather than near the pipes The pipes look quite small so even if it was there I wouldnt be able to get it out or clip it back on lol

Re: Centre Console Air Vent Removal? Help!

Cant you think of a temp fix, i think trying to sort this would be such a mission it would not be worth it. Personally id stop that whistling and just leave it, but i know how something so little to someone else can piss another person off to the max lol.

So your best bet would be to go from the front, the pipes going in are very narrow. Have a look round the edges within the airvent, there will probably be something like a small clip. The punto seems to be made up of many push clips....

I know that is how the other airvents work, you know the one at either side?. Perhaps similar?? worth a try mate.
