Angry floor vent

a couple of days ago, while installing an alarm on my red-wonder, we took out the floor vent tube thing (or whatever the technical term may be) on the passenger side in order to get to the factory alarm connection. now, we cannot get it back in. does anyone know of any way to easily put it back without me scraping up my hands any more? thanks.

Duct tape would be your best bet, as those are difficult things to play with. I kinda got a flying squirrel stuck inside of it, but with a little bit of nuts and trap, he came out and became such a nice pet...
Long story as to how he got in that god damned vent!

Unhappy

well...the thing is...it doesn't even go on all the way. there's still a little over an inch before the part gets around the center side of the vent behind the dash.

any other [less "rigged"] ideas?

I don't know if this would help.. .but how about removing the seat first then try to reinstall the vent? Just a suggestion.

now...it's the vents in the front...that come out of the passenger's side kick pannel. not the ones under the seats. so i don't think that would help.

i may have to pull out the entire center console (or however you spell it). but...i do not know exactly. we shall see.

more opinions will still be wanted in the meantime.

we got it back in. after much effort, and a bimmer tech friend going at the plastic with a knife, we (or he) forced it back in. thanks to all who threw in their $0.02.
