It's 7 screws. 4 are in the little cubby hole. Of those 4, 2 of them are under the rubber matt in the cubby. The other 2 hold the swtich panel in place. Remove all 4 and then remove the swtich panel and access/remove the two screws that attach the vent assembly to the aluminum bulk head. The 7th screw is toward the rear of the sill on the outside, facing the door.

Now all the screws are out. You need to slowly pull up on the sill starting at the back. It's held down with pretty strong dbl sided tape. You'll think you're breaking the sill, but you won't--it's quite tough. You have to pull up HARD-real hard...
For reassembly, in lieu of tape, I used industrial velcro to reattach my sill. Works equally as good to retain the sill, and removes some of the headache for future projects...

Good luck,

Phil
