Finally got the dash out of my 67 and I need to refinish the two metal fascias. How do I remove the plastic vents housings? Also is there a source for the flexible heater vent tubing. All that was in there is broken or split.

Backside of the vents is a plastic ring that rotates to release the vent housing. Also theer is a pinched "U" clip that holst the extended lever that operates the vents.

I found that the rubber gasket seal inside mine rotted away. Just disassemble the rotating vane carefully. Then cut an oval ring from an old tire inner tube. The inner oval cutout (it's donught shaped) fits into a slot in the vane, so get the inner diameter from that piece. The outer diameter is about 5 mm beyond the edge of the vane. Measure the size that just fits along the narrow axis of the oval so that it fits inside the round vent tube, and keep that space all the way around the oval.

Been a few years, so I don't have photos handy.

Osso probasbly does. He's photoed every piece that is in a duetto I think.

The ring rotates against some molded-in fine 'teeth' that are ment to keep it from slipping. Be sure to turn the right way! A firm whack with a screwdriver and the heel of my hand was all I needed.
