Vent in the back of the '08 Crew Cab Pickup...

Last week I had an audio shop in the area install JL Audio Sub and Amp. I noticed a couple days later between the truck bed and the cab there was something that was protruding out. Did some investigation and looks like it is some kind of vent (plastic). Damn installers are going to receive hell tomorrow.

But, how would I go about getting it pushed back in... any ideas. The installer must of push it out...

Any ideas would be appreciated. Thoroughly, irritated and pissed off about them not looking at what their pushing on and drilling. Also, right next to where the amp is installed .... there is a big gash in the carpet where they were going to install the amp on the wall, but decided that wasn't such a good idea.

You think I can get them to replace that carpet? And fix that vent protruding?

You should be able to just stick your fingers through the holes in the vent and pull it back in. I have pushed it out a couple times. And yes, they shoudl replace the carpet if they cut it but ended up not using it.

Maybe get them to mount something free there where the carpet is cut. Is there a screw or something holding the vent out?

If you look at the back of the cab you can see it.

The vent in the back of the cab is to let air out when you close the door, there should be like three flaps that open upward so that gravity pulls them back down closed. If they won't close maybe something in the way, try a broom handle or something to push them back closed. If they're working properly should see them open and drop back closed when you close the door quickly
