Pops right out.

NOTE: You don't have to remove the front of the dash to do this. It just happened to be on my workbench at the moment.
This worked great for me, for the center vents, thank you.

However, the far side dash vents next the the front doors are different and don't seem to want to pry out. Anyone have a trick to get these out without removing the dash?

I learned my lesson (more than once) about not using metal tools to remove plastic interior parts .

I've had much better luck with hard nylon plastic pry tools, like in the link below. No gouging of the interior plastic body parts.
