    If I remember rightly there are a few small plastic push clips on the lip of the vent accessible when to raise the bonnet, push the centre part of the clip through with a tiny punch, the rest should pop out with a small screw driver. I think the vent should lift off once the wiper arms are removed? The wiper arms are held in place with nuts under the plastic covers at the base of the arm.
