    There should be some screws (probably small philips type) on the cover that let you access the inside.

    Sure! Just pull down on the cover and it will come down a couple inches. There are wires (expansion wires, not electrical wires) on the left/right side, just pinch them in and the cover should come off.

    Hope that's the right model. I replaced the motor (and not the whole thing) a few months ago.

    Should be able to "tug on it" and it will pull free. Clips kep it in place if I'm thinking about the same kind. Think of a "snap lid" on squirting condiments. Same principle.

    Some will have a "stopping point" and will hang in place, but out of the way. Others will swing freely. Good luck! :wavey:

    We have something similar.

    You should just be able to kinda pull on it and it should snap free.

    Ok. I was able to get the light panel off but not the vented plastic around it. They're clean tho. I wanted to run it all through the dishwasher but they look better than they did.

    Thanks again!! :wavey:

    Glad you got it figured out. For future reference, throw a few key words in Youtube and you'll be amazed at how many "how to" videos come up (Bathroom fans are popular by the way). My most recent was how to disassemble an 870 and modify the stock for a Tac Star Shotshell carrier!

    I thought I was the only one that ran my exhaust vents through the dishwasher. They are 16 years old and look like new when I do it.

    Mine are chrome and have 2 clips that hold them so they are easy to remove.

    Again, I learn something from GT. Running fan cover through the dishwasher. Good use of resources. Thanks for the tip.
