3SX Aluminum Defroster Dash Vents


3SX Custom Aluminum Dash Vents

If you can find a 3000GT or Stealth that does NOT have broken dash defroster vents, you've seen one of the rarest 3S's on the planet! LOL The notorious cracked dash vents is a well known problem. The solution is to replace them - just about everything has been tried to repair or re-stick the stock ones down. The problem with that "solution" is that the dash gets a mild warp over time and they will not lay down flat. The only real solution is the PULL THE DASH which is essentially a "weekend and a case" type job.

3SX has a brand new product - aluminum dash vents. Ok, so nothing new there... But these can be installed WITHOUT removing the dash! They come with little plates that you clip under the dash and then screw these vents to those little holding clips. It's probably harder to get the old ones broken out than to get these bad boys installed! The other nice thing - they are one piece!

These aluminium pieces are WIDER than the stock vents. This allows them to actually sit on top of the dash. Most dashboards are warped and buckled - the ultimate cause of the stock vents breaking! Having the vents sit atop the dash means they cover the scrappy "unfinished" look of the edges where the stock vents sit down in to supposedly be flush with the surface of the dash. But installing the stock plastic vents will surely only lead to them breaking again.

The 2 rings go on the underside of the photo-sensor so it has the thickness to actually clip in. Note, you may need to remove the glove box to unplug the photo-sensor.

The little clips are inserted just under the dash, then screw the vents down into them, clamping it to the dash.


Available in a bead blasted finish or a brushed finish.

Sold as a pair with installation hardware.
