Video tutorial on how to remove the interior dashboard vents in a VW MK4 Golf. This tutorial includes the driver side, passenger side and center HVAC vents. In order to remove the dash vents on a Jetta or Bora MK4, it takes a slightly different procedure. This procedure can be used in order to replace/repair the vent, cleaning purposes, if you're thinking about making any modifications, or upgrading your Golf style vents. Also included is how to remove the headlight switch, dimmer switch, hazard light switch, rear window defroster switch, and false switch caps. This particular tutorial was done on a 2004 Volkswagen Golf.
