SERVICEABILITY OF INSTRUMENT PANEL REGISTER VENTS

FORD:
2001-2005 Escape
2005 Escape Hybrid

MERCURY:
2005 Mariner

ISSUE
Some 2001-2005 vehicles may exhibit instrument panel (IP) register vents that are difficult to adjust or are limited in their adjustability.

ACTION
Register vents for the IP center finish panel can now be ordered and replaced individually. Replacement of an entire center finish panel assembly to correct a register vent condition is no longer necessary. The IP outboard register vents can be replaced similarly without replacing the entire housing assembly, however, the outboard vent must be ordered as an assembly with the housing. Refer to the following Service Procedure.

SERVICE PROCEDURE
CENTER REGISTER REPLACEMENT
1. Remove center finish panel. Refer to Workshop Manual Section 501-12.

2. With center finish panel removed, release the register retention tabs and remove the register.

3. Replace register with Part Number YL8Z-19893-CAA left or YL8Z-19893-CAB right.

4. Reinstall the center finish panel.

OUTBOARD REGISTER REPLACEMENT
1. Tilt the vehicle's outboard register to the down most position. Pull the top of the register out until it is released from the housing.

2. Remove the new register from the service replacement register housing assembly (base # -19893-), as described in Step 1.

3. Snap the new register into the vehicle's existing outboard register housing.
