Hi,

Im have just bought a 2010 Range Rover. Six of the vent chrome effect plastic inserts are missing from the Vents, see both photos.

Question, does anyone know if they are available as a spare part?

Any assistance greatly appreciated.

Regards,

Terry.

I need 1 also, maybe your po lost a couple and decided to remove them all, might be a slight chance they are tucked in one of the cubby holes, that's if the valet's hoover did not get them, if you find a source let me know.

Unfortunately LR’s ingenious idea was to design it so the whole vent had to be replaced.
I believe I read on the forum somewhere that someone had found a source in China for just the chrome thing. But don’t know the outcome.

take out the other ones and superglue them in,
the vacuum cleaner is where they go when the interior is being detailed

What I did was remove the two in the back vents (the ones facing the back seats, if you still have those) and put them in the front. That way I don't have those holes staring at me! The vents are $500+ apiece according to my dealership... the only way to get the little chrome piece.

What did you use to remove them? Are they hard to pry out? Do they deform in any way when taking them out?

I'm wondering if it's worth the effort taking them out (if you still have yours) and super gluing them in place before they go missing.

They can be pried out reasonably easily, but the holding "teeth" will break (at least mine did). I likewise was going to swap one from a rear vent to a missing front vent; however, I haven't glued it in yet in hopes of someday finding a replacement, but it sounds like gluing them in is the way to go. Pictured attached of how they look from the top so you can see the clips on the side (one of them is broken off in the photo).

I’m wondering if painting over the vent surfaces with some sort of clear coating would work to secure them in place.
Maybe a clear epoxy or lacquer.
