    AC Vent Direction Part

    I need to replace this plastic part used to direct the AC air in a 73 911E Targa. Is there any place I might order? Advice appreciated.

    I've been slowly working on 3D CAD on these parts for 3D printing. Looks like you need what I call the spreader bar. I think I've almost got that one ready.

    It most likely fell inside the blower housing as I have experienced in my cars. You can easily remove the vent and dig it out.

    They also are frequently broken, like the one I pictured from my car.
