INTRODUCTION

This bulletin will address customer concerns of an uneven gap appearing between the top of the center dash air vent grille and the instrument panel dash pad directly above it.  The photo below shows the uneven gaps as indicated by the 5 red arrows.  (Masking tape was used to make the gaps easier to see and photograph.) Insufficient retaining force by the air vent grilles combined with high cabin temperatures may cause this condition to occur.
