Before I sent this '06 C70 center dash vent to an S40 customer in South Korea, I took these pics to show how these vents are mounted into the dashboard assembly. In the pics I picked out large clips that are on the top and bottom of the vent - notice also the small teeth that surround the opening right behind the face plate:<p><IMG SRC="http://pictures.dealer.com/bostonvolvo/5e2261634046385c006caa87f914c497.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://pictures.dealer.com/bostonvolvo/5e2305034046385c006caa874eb6909f.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://pictures.dealer.com/bostonvolvo/5e2352ec4046385c006caa871c5656e2.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Our prices on these C70 dash vents:<p>Left vent, $33.95<br>Center vent, $57.49<br>Right vent, $33.95<p>Hope this helps!<p>John Sharisky<p><BR><BR>

i also filled a warranty claim for the 4 knobs and they are on order, I hope they are the same as the c70 ones.<p>About the dash vents, do they come in beige (to match my interior), or just black?

The vents are kind of a grey color and IMO would not look good with the beige or black interior of a V50/S40. I thought I might like the chrome knobs also, but when I saw them they are too shiney(polished). IMO, they would not go with the brushed aluminum dash.

Re: '06 C70 Dash Vent pics... (cmy4x4)

I checked my vents today and it's possible to replace the non-chrome parts with the chrome ones.<p>My non-chrome parts are also black (with beige interior), so it's just a matter of disassemble the old one and exchange it. (yes it's possible to disassemble).<p><IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">
