Front wing vent/grill rattle

I have traced a slight, but noticeable when inside the car at tickover, knocking noise to behind the nearside front wing's/fender's plastic grill/vent. This is the black plastic mesh with the two silver horizontal flashes I am trying to describe.

I discovered when I hold it pressed in the rattle stops, however itself it is not loose. The same happens when I push down on the black plastic box underneath the hood/bonnet right above where the outside vent is(this is the nearside of car so drivers' on Left hand Drive, pasengers on R/H Drive).

I was hoping to unscrew this outer vent with it's two torx screws but alas it is not as easy as that to remove. They unscrew quite far then stop, but the part will still not move!

Anyone know how they come out or what is behind it?

Many Thanks
