Acess AC vent/duct to recover lost item :P

Ok..

after a long story, i got tweezers stuck in my ac vents...
i was trying to pull them back by using grip from screw drivers, but i lost control, and it fell inside...

any way i can get access to ducts and remove the lost item :P


would be much great, if i coulld clean the ac vent with scented liquid at the same time.

all you have to do is remove the radio trim and it should give you some access. Watch my video on trim removal:

Update - self removed front instrumentation panel/radio trim to get access to ducts.
This was long ago, but there was no success.

Going to carry out Attempt #2, since i got a VERY strong magnet, which will also give me more accessibility.
So i will be building my own "fishing tool" to fish it out.

I wanted to know, where can the fins be found for the central ventilator duct assembly by refering to this image.
Nissan Versa Sedan Manual (Page 6 of 9)
Where do you think the fins for top ducts (Label 10) are located by referring to the image?

you can try closing all other vents, setting the fan to max, then holding a good shop vac up to the vent and pray you can suck it out LOL.

i am going to do the same, but i wont keep a vacuum. instead i'll bury the magnet :P
if the air flow stops me from pushing the magnet down, i would do it without the airflow :P


the trouble is - 1)if i open the center grill to put inside a shop vac, the cannot close the other vent in center (right center vent). Also air escapes from the foot vents, which is my main problem!

2) its hard to put a vac inside, since the duct is very small.

So may the forces of magnetic levitation be with me.

good luck. If that doesn't work then turn the car upside and shake.
