I just did this on both sides of my '93 190E. You will find out that the plastic stub is broken and the lever is doing nothing. After I removed both side vents, I drilled a hole where the plastic stub should be. I used a smal screw and lock nut to hold the lever assembly in place. You have to line up the gears before inserting the screw and tightening the lock nut to adjust to the desired pressure.

To remove side vent, pull the vent out using needle nose pliers starting on one side. You'll see that the vent snaps back in.
Then, you'll need to slightly lift up the plastic tabs, 2 on bottom and 2 on top, to pull the assembly out.

On the left vent assembly, I removed the courtesy light rocker switch first.
