1) There are 2 types of Dash Trays - one is from Altezza another is 2004 IS300.Broomhead said:Damn... You're right. It looks like the entire vent needs to be replaced. I ordered the OEM dash kit a while ago and didn't notice that you have to replace the vent part. I hope I don't have to take apart my dash to install this thing.
Yeah, I ordered the OEM IS300 tray from the .net store. I'm aware that the JDM tray only required you to pop up the felt pad. Are you saying that the vents will just pop out for the IS300 tray?vlad_a said:1) There are 2 types of Dash Trays - one is from Altezza another is 2004 IS300.
2)Both do not require disassembly of the whole dash.
Ah, okay... I think I understand. So the base of the 04 OEM tray will just be the frame around the vents. Do you know if that is relatively easy to remove?thedon said:I think I understand some of the confusion. The JDM Tray I believe sits on top of the stock tray, where as the 04 is a whole replacement for the vent, but... The air direction things are separate from that. I wish I had a picture to show you. Anybody that has taken the stock felt/air vent apart will know that the air direction things come off of that, and you put that onto your 04 piece again.
So what you see in the picture of the 04 is the whole assembly, that would replace the stock air vent/shelf, but you retain your air direction things.
Thats a perfect pic because it show that the 04 piece is just like the nav housing base piece. It has that same little cover that goes over the screws. But here's a picture of my nav housing, just to show what I meant about the air vent direction things.bartkat said:2004 Dash Tray
If I had a dot, I'd kick it down to you. Thanks for clearing that up.thedon said:Thats a perfect pic because it show that the 04 piece is just like the nav housing base piece.

you see that they are missing, because they are interchangeable to go into the stock, 04, and nav housing bases units. These two might even be made from similar molds, just one puts the nav cutouts for the rest of the pieces where the 04 puts a big gap for the pocket piece that you see.
