There are some small screws and tabs holding the inside part of the hood vents under the hood. Have you tried removing them? Maybe then the outer mesh will be removable.

Just removed the vents this afternoon. Actually quite easy - 4 torx screws for each vent from the underside of the hood, then just some gentle tugging (or pushing from the top) and it will pop right out.

Hi
It’s been a while but
I have just removed the 4 screws

It's not glue, more than likely double sided tape in spots. Use some confidence and push from the outside, they will pop out.

OK I’ll give it another go
I’m wanting to put the Italian tricolour on them
Thinking it will look cool from the top
Thanks for the advice
Have a nice weekend

I will pop mine out in the morning and confirm. I'm working on a PPF installation and the hood will be done soon.

The hood vents also let pressure from a cross wind out through the top instead of the bottom, reducing front end lift. Note that the large vent openings from the engine compartment into the wheel wells also will let air pressure from a cross wind into the engine compartment.

When I say cross wind I mean 50MPH+ blasting at the car side. My Q4 would get light enough in the front to upset handling and in one case (low-ish speed on ice) start a slide before I got a QV hood.
