Does anyone know how to remove the circular HVAC vent on the dash? I'm specifically looking to remove the passenger side vent. Someone hit it and broke one of the pieces that connects the louvers. I want to take it apart and try to fix it. Or try to find one at a junkyard but I have no idea if or how it comes off.

That's a good question. Recently while sitting in the passenger seat, I noticed a bug had crawled in and died inside that round vent just past the hexagon shaped grille. I could not find any way to remove the vent without breaking something. I'm sure it just snaps in, but snapping it out doesn't look very easy. I ended up attaching a small plastic tube to my vacuum and sucked the bug out that way.

Edit: Looking at an exploded diagram at www.toyodiy.com it's possible that vent may mount bayonet-style. The hole in the dash is round, but has 3 slots that might be for "ears" on the vent housing.
