How to remove the center dash vent on a 2017 Hyundai Elantra GT?
I'm trying to swap out the original radio on the base model of a 2017 Elantra
GT with an aftermarket Apple CarPlay capable model. To do so, I need to
remove the center dash vents (left and right of the radio) without breaking
them or tearing up the dash. I've tried hard plastic spudger tools, starting
towards the top, but alas, no joy. I did find a YouTube video that shows
starting towards the top, but I can't pop the vents loose. Are there tabs within
the vents that need to be depressed to unlock the vents from the dash? Any
detailed help would be appreciated.
I found a YouTube Video for a 2012-2014 Hyundai Elantra that matches the form factor of the 2017 Elantra GT. This was extremely helpful in where to start with the spudger tool to remove the vents. After watching the video, it only took me a minute per side to remove the vents. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O-0CPt5qrZM
