Attached are photos showing the back of the vent cover with the retaining wire and the recess. The wire goes in the hole marked and one on the opposing side. But how? I fiddled using a variety of tools but could not get the wire in the holes. Then I disassembled the recess parts, put the unit together with the cover in place tried to press the completed unit into the dash. It flew apart. Any help, please.
Hi Keith, loll yes me too it's a pain in ...but in the steel wire I flip it so the little bender is upright so it's easy to insert it, I use a small screwdriver flat...and lots a patience
let me know
What I do is a piece of flat stock , maybe .050 thick and .200 wide, drill a hole in it at the end, and add a slot to the hole. Engage the end of the spring wire, push/pull/ guide it in, do the same for the other side. It’s super easy with the fabricated tool
