Mushroom Roof Vent

Recommended Posts

I've an old Ranger and my fixed ventilation mushroom roof vent is hanging on by a lot of tape. It's been like this since we got the caravan and I've not be unduly worried. There is no water getting in and absolutely no damp (service report tells us this.)

 

However while I was washing the roof today I caught it a couple of times with the brush and it's now quite brittle and several chunks fell off so I'm guessing it needs replacing.

 

Do you think this is a job anybody can do or is it best taken to the dealer? I've had a look inside and there are just 3 screws under it and the part is only about 6 quid (example below). I've looked for fitting instructions on t'internet but can't see any.

 

Does it just screw in or does it screw with lashings of sealant too? Or if I'm asking this should I just take it in?

 

Thanks for any help.

very east to replace, just undo the 3 screws from inside and push the vent up it will have sealent around it, so just clean around the hole in the roof, put some sealent or mastic and put the new vent in a screw it up, dont over screw it as its very easy to do, mike

 

Cheers I will order one and have a bash then :D
