How to remove & replace center AC / heater vent in 2001 Honda Civic ?

Any experts know how to remove the left center (dash) AC / heater vent?  My direction/adjuster tab broke off, and so I need to replace the vent.  However...I don't know exactly how to remove the broken vent (also referred to as the "case assembly") in order to put the other one in.  Afraid to try to pry it out if (for some insane reason) all or part of the center dash has to come out first.   Thanks!

They are held into the dash with plastic "spring" out retainers on the dash register. Use a thin blade like a putty knife to disengage the locks.

SOURCE: Need to know how to remove broken studs?

Your going to have to remove the hub bearing unit to replace the studs.
The studs are pressed fit, so your going to have to press it out backwards. Don't try to hamer the studs out, you may damage the Hub bearing and you might as well change the whole hub if that's the case.
Once you have the hub removed press fit the studs out backward and if you don't have a press fit, you could get away with a clamp and lot's of washer and a pipe for leverage. 
To install the new studs, just follow in revers and press fit the new ones in place, it should take about 30 min to an hour to do. But take your time if you have not don this before.
Good luck and hope this helps, and if your have abs, make sure you line up your sensor before putting the wheels back on.

My 2001 Honda civic Lx battery light flix while car is moving .


1. Make sure the dimmer switch (dash lights level selector) is not pushed all the way up. If not, check the buttons on the door jan (driver and passenger) to ensure they are not stuck "in". If so, you may need to remove these and try to "free" them from their stuck position.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

My heater is not working in my 2001 honda civic. Is it my thermostat?


Does the heater blow cold air from the vents or do you mean the there is no airflow from the vents? cold air from the dash vents when the heater control valve is set fully hot could be an air pocket in the cooling system. The radiator sits slightly lower than the engine causing air pockets to get trapped in the engine when you replace the coolant. you'll have to purge the cooling system to restore flow to the heater core. No airflow (blower motor inop) this could be a bad blower motor transistor. pin test the blower motor circuit.

In my 1998 Honda Accord Lx the hot air does not come out of the heater vents in the floor, the same is true for cold air in the middle vents on the dash. The side vents on the dash work fine.

Replacment of heater core on 01 chevy S-10


Have replaced my heater core in my 2001 regular cab 4wd in december 2009. Had to pull the complete dash including the complete metal dash behind the dash that you see. Also had to remove the right passenger side inner fender well to acess the remaining two bolts that hold the heater core cover to the firewall. Its an insane job to do but the repair shop books call for 9 1/2 hrs to do the job. I'm not an expert but this is what it takes.

Replace dimmer switch in 1997 honda civic hatchback


In 96-98 Civics the dimmer simply pushes in under the left dash vent and is held in place on both sides by metal flexing tabs (no screws). If it were possible to grab it you could pull it straight out with a bit of rocking / side to side motion to help to release it. Unfortunately the proper way to remove it requires removing the lower panel as follows:

You need to remove the plastic cover panel that is underneath the steering column (the one with the switches, coin pocket, and fuse box cover built in). To do this you remove three screws (one above the switches on the upper left, one in the lower left corner, and one on the lower right. You will then need to pull the bottom edge out slightly from the dash and tug the entire panel down towards the floor of the car as gently as possible. You will be pulling out three metal snap-in retainers at the top of the panel, two on the left and one on the right. It is often hard to remove plastic panels without damaging them so be careful. Now unplug the switches (mirror, sunroof, fog light) and set the panel aside. At this point you can easily reach behind the dimmer switch, push it out, pull it through the front of the dash, and unplug it.

Hope this helps
