Remove 2 screws from the vent. Pull wires off top of the vent and out of the channel to the side of the vent. When you lift the fan, it will all come up as one piece, but still have wires connected. You don't need to remove the whole unit, just movie it to the side. You will have to wiggle it out from under the cable that crosses over the top of it.
