I know it's a long shot but maybe someone can help me identify this fan extractor. I can't figure out how to remove the cover to clean it. I was expecting the old metal clips system but the cover seems to be bolted to the fan piece by the centre so it doesn't come out easily.

Yes, you will have to use a box cutter blade to edge the cap out and a phillips screwdriver for the screw usually. It's a manrose/simx grille.
