Yep. After the mount is tucked in, the vent ring is lifted up just enough to put a finger nail under it (near the mount). It’s not noticeable at all.
Thanks man, appreciate the help! It attached exactly like how you said. There is a small gap between the two parts, but it can be forced under the vent - so I'll fix that later.

Push the top and bottom parts together so there’s no gap when they meet up. It should make it more rigid too.

@traxem thank, just forced them together. Nice and solid. Love it.
Either that or trim down the thin tabs a little so they still wedge in but without lifting the trim ring ... just a thought
I'll give that a go if it somehow pops out the vent cover or if the small gap begins to bother me lol.

Either way hope it stays put without issue
A temperature app may show if the vents in proximity do any good to keep the phone cooler
All that's required is reaching over to touch the phone, and if your air is on, it'll be ice cold.

The winter will be a different matter.

Wow! That auto close/open looks amazing. Did you have to butcher the ball joint or was a simple plug and play?

I honestly don’t remember where I got the motorized wireless-charging phone holder. But I found similar ones on Amazon for around $17. Mine is silver, but I guess they also make gold ones.

The new fancy interiors need an auto opening phone cradle in an auto opening center console with voice command option ...
“Hey Mercedes open phone cradle and hit my playlist once connected and block all calls from the woman ...”
“Sure boss please insert your phone when ready and please note the woman will be pissed ...”
