Default Central flap broke

Hello, the flap of the central grill moves, it came out of its seat, I tried to put it back from the front but I can't. Is there a way to access it more easily? thank you

Not sure what your question is. Can you give us the year of your car and a photo of the problem?

This is the problem (the flap), it was attacked at the top in two places, but it came off and from the front I can't get it back in position.

Ok, the a/c vent in the dash. You can push the flap in with your fingers or turn on the engine and set the a/c at maximum cool and the vent should open. I would guess you should be able to then push it over with you fingers. If that doesn't work you may have to take the vynil pad off the top of the dash. Remove the two small end caps, then there are four screws under the front lip. With that off you'll be able to get back behind there. Hope this helps.

I agree. If you remove the top dash pad you should be able to reach the flap mechanism and re-secure it

Cheers

Thank you all, I didn't know you could reach removing the dash, I thought it was closed
