How to take Journey dash apart?

I have an 07 34H Journey. Some of the ducting for the heat/air/vents must have come apart as nothing blows out of some of the passenger side vents. At first look, I can't see how to get the dash apart to fix the issue. Can somebody get me started?

Thanks,

Jeff

Jim_HiTek, here is a drawing I need sometime ago for the early Joureys. Start in the middle and work to the right.
Here is the link to more info.

I had a 2008 Meridian, which I think is the same model. If I remember correctly, the cover over the instrument panel comes off by removing the exposed screws. To remove the entire dash panel, remove the defroster vents. Once they are out, the entire panel slides towards the back of the coach and you should be able to lift it right out.

This assumes that it was made the same way as the next model year.

Thanks for that!

I've spent some time studying that drawing and it's clear as mud. I'll keep at it though.

Jim_HiTek, what I intended to show was the flip out box and mounting comes out first. then the plastic part to the right comes off. Don't remember how many screws but a lot. Now the big plastic part gets removed. There are some screws and a slip in clip that you have to move the part (I think to the right) to release it completely. Good luck!!

Another possible cause for the OP's no air flow might be with the HVAC vacuum system. A hole or loose connection in one of those hoses could cause a no/low flow condition.

Thanks, Michael. I'll start with that and see what happens!

Thanks for the thoughts. I actually have great flow through the other vents, just one is dead.
