To remove the dash you simply use a thin tool and insert it between the dash where the stereo is mounted and the rest of the dash. This will take off the entire section with the AC vents, the AC controls, the clock and the stereo. After you get a portion of it off, gently pull the rest of the dash off. The dash is held to the rest of the dash by spring loaded clips, so if you are careful you won't break anything. The clips are very delicate so dont apply force. The section will get quite exposed so that you can get the ring out. Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Heater on 2003 kia spectra blows out defrost only

Your vent door may be stuck. If you have electric controls listen for a sound in the dash when your turn the knob from defrost to the vents. If you don't hear anything you will need to check the switch then the door/motor. Hope this will help you.
