    All, need some help

    I have a trickle vent in a upvc window that needs replacing

    Firstly how do I measure for a replacement , so I get one with the correct size. Im guessing its screw to screw, full length and depth?

    Also the 2nd picture shows the outside. Do i need to replace these aswell? They seem like 2 plug in vents to me

    If i do need to replace the external ones how do i get the following outside flap off to get to them. Its very sturdy.

    Slide a Stanley knife in and prise off the end caps on the inside of the house, should be able to get at the screws then.
