Center Air Vent Replacement

One of the plastic adjusters has broken on the center air vent, and needs replacing.

Found the part (#64223400074) much cheaper than dealer at http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts...=64&fg=05&hl=1

Does anyone know where I can find detailed instructions (and pictures) how to do the swap over?

Thanks

Just had a play....and the answer is....PULL ....with the aid of a plastic spatula if required. Disconnect bowden cable, pop out the hazard flasher combo switch from behind, disconnect hazard flasher lead and it's out.

Hope this helps someone else.
