vent garnish replacement?

I have managed to crack a vent garnish on a passive 14" Ventline vent in my RV. Today, I took a shower and bumped the vent above the shower and it cracked. How does the garnish get removed; see that Ventline sells replacement garnish fairly inexpenisvely. Just bumped it when I was using a back washer and snick.... geesh. The rest of the vent is still fine I guess and it is not one of the powered vents... just passive.

Usually there are 4 screws through the rim to hold it in place.

Thanks... will take a closer look to see if I can spot screws holding the garnish in place then figure out how deep it must be before ordering.

Hey George, How'd your shakedown trip go? As for the trim, I replaced my shower vent with a Fantastic vent. Easy to do, the wire for the motor is already there. If you go this route, order the 'deep' garnish, as the roof cross section is about 1" deeper (thicker) than what the standard trim garnish will cover. With the fan on, you get a nice breeze thru the TT. Might add the Fantastic vent cover too, while you're at it so you can keep the vent open when it rains.
