    There doesn't seem to be one! Even an ex Daihatsu dealer refused to do mine because the only way is to break the old ones - not a huge problem for me as I have replacements - and risk damaging the surrounding area - this was their main issue!

    Lots have people have successfully removed the vents and then superglued the tabs back on after painting them and my husband promises he will do mine in the summer but he has spent a year trying to find a way of removing the old vents without any damage.

    They come out fairly easy just by turning the whole vent assembly about a quarter turn.
    You need to get to them from behind the dash. The one near the glovebox is easy to try first.
    Good luck

    Did you manage to remove the rings? Thinking of replacing mine - but hope not to damage them in the process!
