911 SC (930) Dash Vents

I am currently looking at a 1979 930 that has one of the movable center vents above the radio that is broken. Are these easily repairable and available?
Also, there is a hole to the right of the steering column about half way between the vent controls where I thought a plug or indication of a former switch was. Is this fixable?

The center vent lists here by our host - 911-571-067-03-M100. A pic of the "hole" would help us understand where it is exactly and what size it is. If it is "round" then you can probably find a plug for it easily......Welcome to the madness

Welcome,

Pelican offers these dash vents. Problem was that they didn't come with the flaps or levers to control air flow. I had to be Macgyver for a day and combine both my new and old parts. I think it costs around 80 bucks though!

Pictures of the problem would really help. My blower motor is currently out so I have really easy access to the vents, if you need any pictures etc.

Any chance you can tell me if your blower housing has a valve located on each side?
My 78 (no AC) has a valve on the drivers side but not on the pass. side. The pass. side does however have another dual outlet valve attached to the pass. side of the housing. Does this sound correct?

930 Air Vents

Unfortunitaly this is a car I was looking at. I do not own it. Does the part listed come as an assembly? Do you just pop out the old and pop in the new? And, is it hard to do?

Call PP and ask them about this. It looks like it is an assembly that drops in. Hard to do is subjective on your mechanic skills :=)

It sure looks like an assembly of the air box and adjustable vents. The pix also shows a couple of tabs on the top. Looks like they are one way, meaning I can be unconcerned and force them down to pull the old box out. The new one should just push in and lock (I think).

you are correct sir. ^^^ (Tabs on top and bottom, 4 total tabs)
I have mine out and that is the way mine is. My vent is also brand new and there was no assembly required. Not sure why a previous poster had to do some assembly work???

Thanks - sounds like I squeeze the top and bottom together and pull it out, then just slide the new one in untill it locks?

When I did mine, the old just pulled out and the new just pushed in. I would just test it to see if everything is actually working and worry about the vents later.

I just had to do work to attach the flaps and levers onto the new vent. The new vent didn't come with this stuff, which was a bit disappointing. I don't know if all come like that or not but if there are no flaps in back then air will come in, whether the motor is on or not. A used one will probably come with everything and cost less.

I'd bet the hole you are talking about is referring to either the fog lights, rear defrost, or cigarette lighter. I've seen earlier cars with the fog light hole closed up, but since you're talking about a 930 it should have them. I would guess the cigarette lighter is just missing.

You kinda confused me there, and I'm starting to forget. I'll post pictures in a few minutes to hopefully help you out.

They are the valves/doors operated by the cables. Just look in each side of the blow dryer and you'll see what I mean. These would be the the two main outlets for the fan.

oops almost forgot about this thread. Yeah that sounds correct.
For the OP: this is the vent with the blower motor removed. Pretty simple, not much to worry about.


This are where the blower motor connects to other parts of the car. There is one connection spot on each side while the second opening on the passenger side should run a hose to the air vent. I tossed the all the hoses but, you can probably figure it out from these pics.
