Grill was cracked (mounting tabs) some time ago by unknown source. Suggest during in warranty problem on fire hazard. Vent grill was falling off.

Unscrewed the remaining (2) screws that held the vent in place, placed the new grill in the tab loctators, and screwed it into place. Done...in less than 10 minutes. It took me 15 minutes to find my wife to show her what a nice job I did.
