Trying to remove my dash kit and can not seem to get it out. I have read that I have to remove the vents on each side to get to the screws and what not..... I just cant seem to get them out. On the Kia service web site (don't remember the site address) they mentioned a special tool. There has to be something else or an other way.

To all those who installed the after market dash kit..... how did you do it?
Maybe D113 knows.

I know how to install a system by my self and did all my previous cars but I tend to have difficulties with some stuff like that, especially on the first time.

thanks

be careful with this i tried it with the close hanger and i hooked it on the wrong spot and knocked a couple things loose. 4.Air vent remover (09840-1M100(A)) should be aligned and hung at the end of air vent.

I have tried everything I thought and just not happening. I think I wont have any choice to go to the dealer and have it done at the same time as my winter tires.... If I don't do that I will end up so frustrated I might break something unintentionally trying to get them out.
