    Don't forget the screws that come from the front and top into the vent frame.

    good luck trying to line up the screw holes up top. I bought a new vent window and it was tough! If your buying used, you should be ok

    They are a real bitch to get out. It helps to pull the window seals to create more room. You will need to twist it a bit while pulling out of the top. It has a funny right angled piece at the bottom of the frame.

    If you have tinted windows I would be very patient so you don't scratch them up.
