Can this cause a problem?
I tried to take the snow out/off, but I’m afraid to damage The front seems to be completely jammed inside. I guess I would have to park inside parking to remove the snow. It seems to be a lot less efficient with all the snow around.

And maybe stop using the e-tron to plow snow.
I don't use the etron as a snow plow lol but the snow this week was up to your knees, so I had to drive out of a couple of snow Banks by the way the car does an awesome job at it put it in off-road mode and the way it goes.
no, I'm not going to jam anything in there I did that last year, and I think it damages to foam in there I had to have it replaced in the summer so that way, this year I'm so hesitant to remove the show because that plastic foam damage very easily, and it's very hard to replace that piece as it's covered from the whole front bumper.
I don't know if it has anything to do with it, but efficiency is not very good right now it's saying 45kwh per 100km was never that high, or its all the ice on the car.

My biggest concern is that it would damage to moving grills in there I know every time we plugged to Charge it does a test to open and close those grills and if it tries to open and it's full of snow I can't see it being very good.

I took it to the car wash and the charging doors are frozen shut I need to get a hair dryer now I don't understand why they didn't have it heated like the mirrors.

I didn't say to jam anything into that lower grill. Did I?

I said
No, you're right. You didn't say to Jam inside there, but last year, I tried to take out the snow with the snow brush, which damaged the foam layer that's in there. That was my bad, and a hairdryer doesn't really work it's too cold outside and there to much snow last year that's what I was trying to do over 1h and very Little snow came out. i think ill have to go to an indoor shopping mall or something as I don't have a parking garage.

So I took it to a hand car wash. Apparently, they only put the high-pressure hose trying to get the snow out of there. I didn't even mention anything about it but they did it. Anyways, I brought in the car for a car wash only, but that's the outcome now, so I guess this is going to become a yearly maintenance replacing that stupid part at least it's nothing mechanical only a small piece don't yet understand why didn't use stronger material, this was exactly what I was trying to avoid happening just like last year.
