    i would say air vent surround, or faceplate/trim
    People are caught up in an egotistic artificial rat race to display a false image to society. We want the biggest house, fanciest car, and we don't mind paying the sky high mortgage to put up that show. We sacrifice our biggest assets our health and time, We feel happy when we see people look up to us and see how successful we are

    Try "air vent housing', or 'air vent surround' with your car make and model.

    That looks like a Zafira? Try this:

    For another similar suggestion, air vent fascia.

    Over the years I've found most "faceplates" from a dash are referred to as fascias.

    How old is your vehicle?

    Old enough for a few "retired" specimens to be in your nearest scrappys?

    That would be my first port of call.
