Coffee spilled in dash vent
Long story, but I had a tray of coffee sitting on my dashboard, and it tipped over. One of the cups fell directly over the vent on the passenger side dash, and all the liquid went directly into the vent. There's absolutely nothing on the dash itself, so the whole cup spilled into the vent. Is there anyway I can clean out/remove the liquid? I'm not really sure where it's actually sitting, but the whole truck smells like coffee!

I have a service manual that covers the hvac system
You could crank up the heat till its dried out if you don't want to rip apart the dash(just a thought)
If you have a 02 remove the cabin air filters it will let out the coffee
I was wondering when something like this would happen

Have an'03 - is the cabin air filter different than the '02?
