NOISE - CLIMATE CONTROL - RATTLE NOISE FROM INSTRUMENT PANEL VENTS - DIFFICULT TO ADJUST
Publication Date: March 5, 2004
Some 2001-2004 Mustang vehicles may exhibit climate control panel vents (barrel vent) with vanes that are difficult to adjust, and/or may make a rattling type noise. This may be due to detachment of the air vanes from the pilot holes in the vent housing.
To service, install revised vent (3R3Z-19893-AB). The barrel vents are now sold and serviced separately. Refer to the Service Procedure below.
Order replacement vent (3R3Z-19893-AB), one (1) for each vent requiring replacement.
Remove the vent by prying it away with a flat screwdriver (Figure 1).
Install the revised vent by pressing the new vent into place (Figure 2).
Repeat Steps 1-3 as needed.
