My 48 Panel has a cowl vent door on the Driver’s side. It doesn’t open or close all the way. Seems to be stuck, was able to get the 4 bolts out from the outside. Still seems to be stuck, did remove the inside handle. It will still not come out of the cowl. I can see there are springs at the top and bottom. I have looked everywhere for a drawing or instructions on how it is put together with no luck. Can anyone help?

I'll have to look in my 47-55 Truck Assembly Manual at home to see if that side vent is featured there. Stand by.

UPDATE: I checked however only the 1954 / early 1955 body is discussed and featured. Nothing on the pre 1951 models. Sorry.
