First I removed the old air/grease filter from the exhaust fan. It get washed monthly, so after several years of use, it was time to replace it. Once the old filter was removed, I opend the new filter package, slide the new filter into the filter slot from left to right. Once in all the way, I slide it back to the right to set it completely.

Second I began work on the cracked grill. I removed the phillips head screw on the left side of the grill, then removed the phillips head screw on the right side of the grill. I pulled the old grill off straight out. I opened the new grill package. I started to install the new grill by insert the bottom part first, then insert the top tabs and guide second, make sure I pushed slightly on the grill so it seated top and bottom at the same time. I installed both phillips head screws, left and right side, and completed the job.
