Direction of 1969 Side Vent Installation?

Trying to reinstall my original '69 AC vents. Question: What direction do the vents install? My guess is that the vents are placed so that the adjustment tab appears on the third horizontal vent from the bottom. But I have seen pictures of the vents installed so that the tab is on the third horizontal vent from the top. (I can't find any original factory pictures with enough detail to get a clear answer.)

Would appreciate your thoughts. Thanks.

Dan

I haven't gotten this far yet in my restore but mine are on the third from the top.



Mine are broken and I can't vouch for the positioning, I just bought the car last summer.

The restoration guide shows them but not which direction they go (I didn't look through the whole book yet).

Shows how good my memory is....

I'm pretty sure the photo is correct --- the little tab with the serrated edge for your finger to grip is oriented so that it's on the underneath side when installed.

I used to be able to remember what I did and what I had to do for at least a year at a time… now I have to write everything down.

Interesting. My 70 non-ac car doesn't have the tabs at all.
