How to retrieve an item from the air vent.
 
Lets just say a cigarette was dropped into the right set of vents on the top of my dashboard on accident.

I tried fishing it back out, but i think I may have pushed it down further.

How do I go about opening it up to retrieve my cigarette. I drive an '87 Wrangler.

Take the vent out & tape a piece of flexable hose to ur' vacuum cleaner, stick it down the vent & it will git' it

Leave it and buy a new pack, of course they are expensive these days. Never mind get that sucker and smoke it! ( this coming from a man on Chantix :banghead: )

Doctor 02-15-2010 02:46 PM

i will try the vaccum thing here in a minute.

It's not really a "Cigarette" to say, its much more valuable than that.

I don't think it's a Marlboro aor a Newport down there.

My bet is on it being a slightly more exotic blend.

Just turn the defroster on high, roll up the windows and breathe deep.

Grab one of those screens thats on the end of your sinks fosset and put that deep in the flexible hose make sure it doesnt move that way your "cigerette" doesnt get sucked into the flith inside your vaccum cleaner

crtaylor 02-15-2010 05:31 PM

Man that is the best answer hahahahahaha! ffffuuuuunnnnnnnnnnyyyy!!

It's simple. Just drive your Jeep to Mexico and back again. At the border the dog will sniff it and the nice people who work for the Border Patrol will carefully extract it using crowbars and sawzalls.

Problem solved. :wavey:

this has got to be my favorite thread of the week...

buckshot500 02-15-2010 08:23 PM

Winch your jeep upside down in a large strong tree. Then (using safety stands of course) support the jeep in that position. Now you can crawl under there & easily get it out.:punk:

I am afraid it doesn't even come close to the "Lake" incident being tracked in the TJ threads. Let's just say it's a candidate for the Darwin Awards.

APPSTATEwrangler 02-15-2010 08:38 PM

haha oh yeah i forgot about that one,
idk even i was hurting after reading the lake thread, this thread just made me crack up.

crtaylor 02-15-2010 08:57 PM

Hell, I think they were hanging out together:blunt::blunt::blunt:

This has to be my 2nd favorite thread. The guy that lost his tj in a lake has to be #1.

Doctor 02-17-2010 07:18 AM

I'm glad its all your second favorite thread, but I still need some help.

How do I go about taking the whole air vent housing apart. I don't have a hose that is small enough, or long enough. I took apart the dash, and tried to to get in there, but I can't see how.

Just pry the cluster guages off with your bong.

jcf 02-17-2010 07:40 AM

↑ :rofl: if he drives it around long enough when he's stoned eventually he'll tip it over & it will fall out anyway

Razorus 02-17-2010 08:04 AM

Variation to copleydad's advice; get that sucker burning by dropping a lit match or two down there.....THEN hit the defrost....heh

Frenchie 02-17-2010 09:43 AM

lol thats what you get for being careless with a good "cig" i think ive dropped 3 lighters down there but never a cig..........id say just roll the bitch and see if it comes out
