Evora 400 - help needed - removing air con vents on top of dash


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

My Evora 400 has a nearly constant annoying squeaking/creaking coming from the two vents at the top center of the dashboard.  I have looked at the Deroure diagrams (the 400 vents are different than the earlier Evoras), tried shimming the vents with thin paper then thicker rubber and neither attenuated it at all.  The only thing that seems to help is downward finger pressure on the squarish portion behind the round rotating vents.  I have pushed, pulled, twisted, etc and there seems to be nothing that will pop them off.  The screws shown in the Deroure diagram are covered by the plastic round bezel so I can't simply unscrew them.

Any tips would be very much appreciated!  Thank you!!

I had an issue with the right hand vent. They are Ford Fiesta 09-14 S-Max Mondeo MK4... apparently. this video is only a start as the 4XX has another ring which isn’t  flexible

When I got my 400 new in 2018, one of my first warranty issues was to resolve a creaking/rattle coming from the drivers side air vent.

Silverstone took the original one out and replaced with a new one and reported back that a piece of plastic had broken near the fixing point and that it was probably over tightened during assembly at the factory.

Apparently it wasn't difficult to remove and could be a similar issue.

I think that what they want to know is "how to remove it" as opposed to how difficult it was,

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

I realise that, but just wanted to clarify the issue I had and that it required a replacement rather than shimming etc.  I'm sure Ben at Silverstone would be able to explain the removal process.

OK I'm first to admit the method used in the video wont work with an EVORA.

The Issue is the way the ones in the EVORA and made is the clips are not accessible with a tool.

However if you can twist the inner ally ring they should come out, however you cannot get any purchase on the ring, some pictures.

The first and second picture is the index slot, The last picture is the inner "ally" ring I refer to.
