    Default DS air duct grill

    Hello, how is the grill at the front of the radiator duct held in place? I did take it apart but I can't remember

    Hi,
    It sits on the opening in the under tray and is held in place by the aluminium ducting I think.

    Cheers,
    Ed

    Good question!

    Mines currently in bits. I think it was loose? It's shaped/ pressed to fit in the air scoop hole. Is it simply held in pace in the hole by the aluminium ducting on top of it? Sounds unlikely as it would rattle?

    you are correct, it is held in place by the aluminium air intake. The mesh itself should have a rubber strip that fits along the long sides as does the leading edge of the aluminium air intake. It won't rattle, when everything is in place.

    And on my DS23, there are 4 self-tappers: 2 at the base of the duct and 2 others securing the duct at the top of the aluminium section to the cross bar.

    Interesting. I have the rubber 'feathered' blade on the front edge of the scoop, but didn't know about the rubbers on the grill itself. Got any pictures?

    I will take a pic of mine, I may well have embellished the grill with a rubber from the aluminium intake.

    pretty sure mine has captive nuts for small screws to secure it top and bottom.... but it is too hot in the shed to go and check before writing this. i just installed a roof vent - one of those whirly things - to try to lower the furnace like levels this summer.

    Good idea. i only asked because cars sometimes 'lose' bits over the course of repairs. two roof bottles and brackets have gone astray from my car - as have the pads/ spacers that sit under the aluminium cross bar that the spare wheel sits on. Until you go looking, you don't realise these bits aren't there.....
