Default Does defroster louvre pop off?

I have a nasty rattle coming out the center defroster area on my 2011 1500 Sport. Before I start trying to pry something off that can't be pried off, Does anybody know if the defroster grate pops off easily? So I can get hopefully put a stop to my rattle.

I went after it today. Damn thing wouldn't budge or show any signs of being a separate piece. It's only bad occasionally but when it's bad it's bad and I feel like driving a self taper right thru the dash! Lol...

Hey, thought I would add my 2 here.
Are you sure the squeak/rattle/noise is actually coming from the dash? I had something very similar happen to me... I had a squeak/rattle that SOUNDED like it was coming from the centre of the dash (between the defroster vents)... turned out to be the rear-view mirror making the noise! Re-adjusted the mirror = noise gone.

Yeh I'm pretty sure. If I press down hard on the dash just toward the cab of the center defroster vent the dash goes down about an inch & the rattle goes away. Annoys the hell outta me on a bumpy road.

I'll check the mirror tho. Thanks for the reply.
