After about and hour and a half of struggling to remove something I had this made by a neighbour, but what did I remove with it ?

Wild guess but is it for removing the air vents :)

As it happens that's a damm good guess. I spent an hour and a half of my life today that I will never get back on trying to remove the drivers side vent (above the COMAND system). My neighbour made this in about 15 minutes and the vent was out in under two minutes. I think I will remove two of the clips on each vent before I put them back (there were four on each), as it will make it easier to remove next time.

Well done rjc_147 if there was a prize it would be on it's way to you now, unfortunately there isn't a prize. Sorry :(

I don't know if you have ever had to remove one of those vents but my second one was like it was glued in.

Hi Platinnum,
I checked with him today, he has no more of the bar we used to create it but he didn't seem to keen anyway. I am sorry.
Maybe you have a school or collage who have metal working facilities near by and may be they could help.
I could photograph it with rulers, so you can see the sizes if that would help ?
