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!

Where can I find aftermarket dash air vents for a 2003 Chevy SSR

That is not something that other companies make because they never need changing. if you need them it would have to be a dealership special order from the factory.

eBay does have some original parts as well as secondhand dash complete

Lost a ring down the front defroster

Thats probably going to be an expensive fix.
Chances are the ring is in the vent ductwork somewhere between where you dropped it and the heater box under the dash.
Since it is probably gold, a magnet won't touch it. So you'll probably have to get the heater box disassembled to retrieve it.
They may have to take the dash out to get to the ductwork.

Lighter stuck in vehicle vent

He will need to Remove the Dash panel to access that Lighter. Be careful though, If you **** stuff around it could fall down further and will not be Retrievable! Also try a ScrewDriver and Some 3M Double sided Tape through the Vent, This could work also.
