Hmmm, not sure about easy.  The vents have a little plastic latch in the upper

or levering the lower latch up whilst sliding the vent up as far as it will
go, whilst pulling the vent forwards gently, you can get first one unlocked
and then the other, then the vent slides out.  The second vent is a bit easier

upper latch down and the lower latch up.  Don't lever the latches too much or

probably get fingers in to position the tube in the vent as you push it home,
for the second one you will need a hand up behind the dash to position the
tube.  With the vent open and enough light you can see what you are doing.  If
you don't get the tubes positioned in the vents you will get a continual

  Is there an easy way to get the vents out?
