Kiwi Russ is an unknown quantity at this point
Recently I had a radio installed in my car, the installer said there was a quantity of broken glass from a broken windscreen that had dropped into the air vents.
My question: is it important to get the broken glass out of the vents. I was told that sometimes small bits of glass may fly out of the vents into your face, when the fan is going full blast. If it it is important to get rid of it - how is it done?
Thank you for any replies
Russ

thats a new one for me.

Getting it out sounds like a good idea, but not really sure how you would go about it.

Try turning the blower/fan on full blast and getting a vacume in/near there.
