Just got my 2k3 v6 Passat yesterday, and I love it, but I have one annoying problem that I cannot figure out. I have 2 louvres on the HVAC dash vents that are aiming in the wrong direction, I tried gently guiding them back but they seem stubborn and I don't want to snap anything off.
Anyone else had this or know how to adjust the position of these louvres?

Cheers guys/gals, great site BTW, think I am going to enjoy the B5 world!

While yer main squeeze isn't looking, go in the kitchen and get three butter knives.

Insert them at top left, center, and right of the dash louvre unit and carefully pry the tabs while rolling the unit towards the floor.

Sorry, had to revise removing, I was thinking of my Jetta.
