    Take a pressurised can of (fragrence/deoderizer) and spray at the linkages. WD 40 won't spoil the finish but it'll trap dust and other contaminents making it more obvious and unhealthy. They'll eventually loosen with time.

    dont use fragrance/deodourizer!! it WILL discolour the dashboard..u can use WD40 in a small amount maybe with a needle and syringe to put just one drop...it wont spoil the finish and with a syringe it wont be much too catch dust etc!!

    You are a lucky person that the AC vents have gone stiff otherwise usually they become freely moving and doesnot stay where you set .

    By the way go to the service station and ask the person to blow some pressurised air onto the AC vents in such a way that the air should pass through it from every directions. Also turn the vents in all possible directions during the above process. All the dust particles will vanish and your AC vents will be freely moving.

    One more thing, the left-right movements are on the central strip of the vent, try to clean the central strip with a wet cloth so that there should be no friction of dust during left-to-right or right-to-left movement.

    The ideal solution to this problem is similar to FLi_GTi's, but just replace the frangrance/deodorant with can of interior polish (like 7CF I use). That should loosen up those vents.
    The rule book is for guidance of the wise and obedience of fools.

    Use WD-40 it is a good lubricant plus it looses up any dust that might have settlen in or some thing else of similar nature. Use of any lubricant will accumulate some dust particles any how. So use WD 40 which has dual properties, it looses up any thing stuck in between and it also lubricates,,, In my openion, regards Rashid Y
