Question about 2004 Chevrolet SSR
2004 ssr lost ring in dash vent how to retrieve it?
Your vehicle has a central fan blower under the dash that feeds the cooled or heated air to the vents thru plastic tubes, sometimes round, sometimes flattened and curved to get from spot to spot. There are large vents at the base of the blower unit that supply air to the floor. If you locate that you can find the blower. Then there are smaller tubes that go to the other front and side dash vents. Be careful as there are wires and vacuum lines in the area which are connected to your vent controls on the dash. The bad news is that the top dash vents are usually fed from the top of the blower and may actually require a contortionist or partial dash and blower system disassembly to gain access. If you are lucky perhaps the ring fell all the way into the blower box itself and you may find that removing the side vent tubes alone will allow you to reach in the blower box and retrieve it. Otherwise it may take a professional a couple of hours to do the job and of course they will charge you accordingly. It's up to the value of the ring. Good Luck!
