2013 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster: Dash Misalignment

July 8, 2013

2013 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster

Our former long-term Audi A8 had some cool pop-up tweeters in the dash, courtesy of Bang and Olufsen. Our Mercedes SLS AMG has similar tweeters, but they're not supposed to pop up. One did, anyway.

I got in the car and my eye was immediately drawn to the misaligned speaker panel where it meets the dash. In a car where almost everything is built to exacting standards, even the smallest flaw sticks out.

Once I got home, I gently pushed the speaker back down. The mounting pins/clips didn't feel very substantial, which might account for it coming loose in the first place. It didn't snap into place, it just sort of slipped in with a rubbery squish. I wouldn't be too surprised if it happens again.
