Forester vent covers

2008 Forest River Forester 3101S. The vent covers are shot.

It looks like I can't just replace the covers. Do I really have to replace the whole unit ? I see the entire assemblies at PPL. Does anyone know what the replacement unit is ?

Thanks.

You should be able to replace the covers

Amazon has the replacement covers..Easy to change. They all seem to be 14x14, same as our camper. I broke one on my cargo trailer removing snow..

I can't seem to get JUST the covers off. Thus the question.

I remember removing 4 screws to remove the screen from inside to do something I don't remember, then release some tabs on the roof side to remove the old cover. 10 minutes start to finish..Maybe somebody that did it more recent can fill in the blanks.

Can't see any screws. Should I take the handle off ? Maybe I can then get the screen off. Heck.

Found the 4 screws. Took off the inside cowling and the crank handle. Removed the screen. It still looks like the entire unit has to come out.
