My left lower fresh air vent grill needs replaced. Wondering if there is major disassembly needed or can it be just poped out and replaced easyly?

The part number I'm mentioning is

64455-MCA-000

Just pop out and replace, but be careful not to damage the adjacent paintwork. :)

Can"t speak for the 1800 but on the 1500 if you can get behind it by removing some plastic it makes it easier.

I had tried to pull it in hopes that it would pop out but didn't want to break anything by pulling too hard. There are no clips holding this in??? I'll give it another try

The vents have little molded clips that are a part of the trim section. The trim part of the vent is about one inch deep into the duct and through the side panel. What works for me is to take a piece of scrap leather, like off the bottom of an old pair of chaps or something, tuck that under the outside edge and use a somewhat thin and wide tool to gently wiggle and pry them out, something like a putty knife. You have to bend the side of the OEM vent in a bit to push the plastic in enough to let the molded nubs clear the side panel. The nubs are on the long side of the vent. Sometimes they are stubborn and you have to take the side panel off, or risk marring the side panel.
