Roof Vent Repalcement (Ventline)

I need to replace one of the roof vent covers that's cracked and it looks like I would need to drill out rivots to get it off UNLESS there's another way to remove it that I don't know about. Anyone ?
It's a Ventline AS-13 on my Monaco Diplomat
I'm hoping there's another way than todrill out all thse rivots on the hinge side and two on the front?

from what i have read on the ventline websight which btw is owned by dexter axle company ,, anyway ,, they provide new screws for the dome vent ,, so i would take it that u will have to drill out the rivets ,, I myself have never repalced one of the type that u are talking about ,, i have replaced many other types and they were pretty well straight forward ,, hope this helps

The only ventline covers I have ever seen come off by removing the interior garnish, the screen, and the crank mechanism. Then go on the roof and lift the vent and bend the tab on one end of the hinge and slide it off.

I re-did all mine last fall.

I'm not sure of my model #, but it was easy.

1. Remove inside trim (inside coach)
2. Remove screen and lift arm screw (inside coach)
3. Remove old lid (outside on roof)

There were "tab" style locks that allowed me to slide the old lid off the hinge and the new one on.

Once in place, bend the tabs over at the ends (prevents from sliding side to side)

Return inside and replace removed items...

The new lid will have the 1/2 the hinge already revited on...
