  • Register - Rood Side Air Outlet Vents Prado Model 150 - Help sought about fitting fitting new one

    Hi all,

    has anyone had their roof vents mounts break? - that is one of my roof vents fell out, and on closer look the bracket that the adjustable vent fits into - one of the holes is broken.
    When you look at the mounting frame, the hole in the end towards the front of the vehicle is round, the other end (towards the rear) looks hexagon (actually has 7 sides), the plastic frame is flimsy and looks as though the pressure of daily using the vent is enough that eventually the mounts break and the vent falls out.

    Attached is 2 photo's, one being the frame where the 7 sides hole is broke, and the other is the vent with matching 7 side key.

    Has anyone experienced the problem?
    Has anyone changed one of these mounting frames?
    Is it an easy job?
    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Regards

    Looks like its had an impact more than worn out. New one from partsouq or amayama and clip it in. nothing hard about the job.

      Had the same thing happen to mine- I'm pretty sure nothing hit it as I've got no kids but the dirt roads probably don't do it any good either. Refer to Piggys post for solution.
