Lexus RX300 dash vent cover removal?

Lexus 2001 RX300 - Dash AC vents have a little handle that directs airstream. Handle popped off. I think I can remove the AC vent covers and access this to repair. Has anyone removed these vents?

SOURCE: there is no air blowing out the vents on the dash board when i turn the ac on

you have a bad control unit, the thing you use to switch from one thing to the other, it needs to be replaced.

If Your Looking At The Radio There Is A Black Bezel Around It. Get A Small Flat Head Screwdriver And Pry Forward On It And It Will Pop Off Then Behind It There Are Either 2 Or 4 Screws Holding The Radio In Place. Once You Remove The Screws The Radio Will Slide Toward You And Come Out.

SOURCE: Fuel Fill Problem-Lexus RX300


Yes....this does sound like a kinked or restricted vent pipe.

Has it been like this, since you bought the car ?

Did you mention this whilst still under warranty ?

Have you ever had any accident damage or repairs in this vicinity of the vehicle ?

I suggest you go back to your main dealer and try to get this rectified under warranty, as this is a potentially hazardous, and dangerous fire problem.

Due to the temptation not to fit the pump nozzle fully in to the tank spout, to speed up the filling procedure.
And possibly then a blow-back of fuel, over yourself, and then the fire risk.

Lexus normally have a very high standard to maintain, especially where safety is concerned.

Get an appointment with the service manager, and do not be fobbed off.

$2OOO. sounds a ridiculous cost to rectify this problem.

Let me know your thoughts?

A FixYa rating would be appreciated.... Thank you !

Good Luck !

What happened?? Dash boards don't like to be removed. You will need a book, some of the bolts are hidden behind vents and other stuff in the dash, the steering will have to come off. The switches, for the most should pull out the front, be disconnected, and the wire stuffed back in, the ac controls should pop off, remove the plastic front, bolts underneath?, leave the vent controls where they lie, take notes, take fotos, get help, this is a 2 day job!!

AC blowing behind dash

on your vehilce it does not use vacuum to control the vent direction.
It uses a series of actuators (electrical).
My guess is that the air blows out the defrost (top vents) this is the default position for the mode door actuator.
More than likely it will have to be replaced.

AC/Heating/Vent Not Working Correct

you have to remove the dash covering your vent system. You need to find the flap and controls that handle the flap. One of these flaps have been jarred. Put it back in place and make sure the cables all work correctly

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.

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

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.
