    Both my driver and pass fresh air vent doors are missing the locking knobs. Thwy doors and hinges are fine. Are they available or does anyone have a white trash fix? The doors under the dash that blow fresh air not the fly windows. Right now i have them taped shut
    Thanks in advance.

      I am interested in the answer to this question - my passenger side vent door has no handle - 69 Dart Swinger.

      Sorry if i posted in the wrong section. I was more interested in any remedies or fixes rather than just looking for parts.

        Bolt on a small drawer pull knob from lowes or home depot where the old handle was. Fashion up a bracket to mount on the box itself with a fairly strong pill magnet. And adjust the bracket so magnet touches the steel on the door to hold the door shut tight.

        I have never seen reproduced lever/handles. You will need to fashion something. We usually replace the vent with a good used one or drill the rivets out and replace the door with a good used one.

        Thanks Mike - I figured that might be the best way. Will need to pull the box to drill out those rivets.

        The vent assembly is usually attached to the underside of the dash with long with hooks on them.

        I believe there are nuts inside the air box to loosen.

        Thanks Mike, I will look for those nuts. That would sure make it easier to drill out the hinge rivets and attach the new door i purchased.
