I also a layer of dirt from the one where I got the vent from, going to go shower


On a sad note I saw them bringing in what was left of a 99 se that was burned beyond reconition, it was a little freaky....

Light thing, eh? You mean map lights?

And you are lucky you found those vents in such good shape, most are broken all to hell.

I think I actually saw another thing of center console vents there, not sure.


EDIT: I went and installed the stuff I got, all went well except for putting in the left part of the vent, a part was missing that I didn't know about so its barely hanging on right now, and the map light works 100%! Theres some exposed headliner around it though, anything I can cover it with?

Sounds to me like you got the maplight assembly out of the wrong year, or installed it wrong. What year was the donor car?

It was a 92-95 base bonneville. Are there different sizes of map lights? (they all look the same )

Check the 8-digit part number molded into both parts and post them here.
