Felt. But in truth, you might has well replace the vents. Youíll put more work in trying to fix them versus replacing. I had that same issue when I bought the truck. Spent a lot of time trying to fix, it can be tedious. I ended up getting new ones, and wished I had done that in the first place. They are so much cleaner and prettier now. And they stay in place like they should.

I was trying to find a good picture of a vent diverter, and this is the best I could find. Did your new vents have this round piece? Itís like a foam or felt, canít remember exactly what the material is, but if these were missing on the new vents that could be why.

I'll have to take a look. Can you order just those pieces?

I put the furry part of a piece of velcro on top. It works well.
