Removed inner cover of door. Pried Vent Assembly from door, peeled off thin sponge gasket strip from inner door, installed new thin sponge gasket strip on inner door vent opening bottom, snapped Vent Assembly into inner door opening, reinstalled inner door cover to door.
Recommend removing Vent screen from inner door first to expose locking tabs of Vent Assembly to ease removal and installation of Vent Assembly. I assume vent cover will come off if pried with small screw driver. I didn't remove vent cover and had difficulty removing and installing Vent Assembly. (I did accomplish it though)
