No sorry

However have you thought about looking st the relevant parts or car section within real OEM and they often have exploded diagrams which will help you work out clips and such like...

No trim tool needed. Just grab and pull.
Grab from the slotted side outward.
Just don't drop it since you may damage it.

My passenger side black gloss trim broke. They're going to replace on warranty but the plastickiness of it is a bit rubbish.

I used the pull method too. Here are some pics I took that make it easier to see. I wrapped mine in carbon fiber vinyl, but may just end up buying the real deal.

Hi all, I have try to grab and pull outward but seem like very tide. Is it OK to keep on adding force until it come out? Scare that I will break it. Please advice, thanks. Appreciate if someone that been done before show some video or photos on how to remove it. Thanks again.

You literally pull from the top (opening of the vent) away from the car. The two yellow clips will likely fly off but not break.


I'm surprised so many are having trouble, I've never had a trim piece come off so easily.
