My old Nicro was an outside pvc pipe with flange fastened and epoxied to the deck going through the deck hole. The vent fit insideand slid into the pipe with attachments at the top. Your old Nicro vent should unscrew and slide out of the deck pipe and you should be able to replace it with the newer 3" or 4" model depending on what you hole diameter is without redoing the outside thru deck pipe. I did this project with a new Nicro solar day/ night this year.
