Hi.

Can you take another photo from a bit father back so we can orient our view with our own SLKs? also - to help us help you - do heed Jeff's advice and fill in your profile. It makes everyone's job a bit easier (including yours!!) and only takes a moment.

Welcome to the forum, by the way, from Surrey.

There is no grill there, just the flap for fresh air. That's why water gets into the cabin so quickly when the seals leak, and why the blower motor goes bad sure to moisture - it's a bad design.
