Yeah, I popped mine out too thinking that might be the case but the plastic - pegs I guess - had broken off in a couple of the holes.

If he doesn't want them I'll take one. I have a broken one too...

jpg103 Ray, let me check with my local salvage dealer first for some black ones and then I'll let you know if I'm still in need. Thanks!

Cost of HVAC Replacement Vents - Am I Crazy?

I called a local dealer today to inquire about the price of replacement HVAC dash vents in my '03 TJ (some of the slats have been broken off of the track and no long rotate when the thumbwheel is adjusted.)

The parts department quoted me: $69.70 each for the inboard replacements and $72.33 each for the driver and passenger side replacements for a total of $311.01 . To the guy's credit, he suggested a local salvage Jeep part dealer which was going to be my next choice.

Were he and I talking about the same parts or are these things just that expensive from the dealer. The prices seem insane.
