Hello! So both of the side louvers/vents on my '94 LC are warped/broken. I just ordered some new (well, used) ones from Cruiserparts. My question is: Do these louvers just pop right off? I know they have clips that hold them into place. (Those are what's broken) If they just pop right off, I'll go ahead and replace them myself. But if they're more complicated than that, I think I'll have my Land Cruiser guy replace them. I've attached some pictures of mine below. Thanks!

look at the back side of the new ones. i'm guessing there is a stud and you'll need to remove the inside quarter trim to get to the nut inside the vehicle.

Yes, you need to remove the inside trim. Then look around inside the D-pillar for the bottom nut and upper 2 plastic inserts.

I did this too not long ago...be very careful the two top clips are aligned before you pop in place. I ordered new so no brittle plastic and broke one. Also while in there clean up and make sure the vents are working--the rubber can dry out and then you get dust, water and noise in (this is why I tore into mine)

did you need to buy additional mounting hardware besides the assembly in the picture?
Only hardware is the nut on each lower stud. Should be able to reuse them. On driver's side, just open the jack access panel and reach way up to get to nut. Passenger side requires removing interior panel.
