Plastic Cover on roof vent

Does anyone know how to get the plastic cover off of the roof vent without taking the whole assembly out, for my cover is cracked.

There are a few diferent brands but most i have seen are this way. Raise the vent and remove the vent arm by using the notch. Open the vent and using a small flat screwdriver pry up on the end tab at the hinge. The entire vent cover/lid should now slide off.

If you're talking about a vent cover that allows the roof vent to be raised even in the rain, there are different types. At worst you might have to find screws under caulk and remove.

If you'r taling about the square domed cover that seals the 14" square, they usually have screws into the hinge. Crank it up all the way and either attack from below if you can remove the screen or from above. Replacement covers aren't too expensive, take the old one with so you can get a better match.
