I lost my wedding ring down the vent on the dash of my chevy trailblazer. I believe it's the defrost. The vent in the middle close to windshield. How hard is it to remove the dash? How much would it cost to have a professional do this? Is this something I could attempt on my own? Thanks!

I don't know, but;
I dropped something down there and I could see it by standing in the doorway and looking down through the windshield. I used one of those gizmo's that is a cable and 4 jaws open/close when you push/release the button and snagged it.
Hopefully you're that lucky.

Well, I was working at a fair out of town. It was VERY hot and humid. My fingers swelled. My ring became uncomfortable. So, on the drive home i put them up on this little rubber mat i have on the dash. Needless to stay, it did not stay put. Sorry, that probably wasn't the risque answer you were hoping for.

I did try to look down into it and felt around a bit too- no luck! :(

Getting the dash out and back into the vehicle is one of those 3-6 hour jobs. Not for the low-experience mechanic because of the slight risk from the passenger side airbag removal. You need to take precautions to not let it explode. But well worth it for the average wedding ring. :thumbsup:

Mine went down the defrost vent too...

Were you able to get yours or is it still in there? Thanks Kevin
