Talking Hi

If you can not find a gasket use some silicone. Use what is called a gasket maker available in your local auto parts store.

You must have a gasket on all the ceiling vent covers.

Some dealers carry that gasket.

Does other vent(s) have gasket?

If so you may be able to purchase the same self adhesive backed gasket at a local Home Depot, Lowes, or local Hardware store. Happy Trails, Ed

Don't use silicone

There are many threads and posts here regarding the poor performance of silicone sealers and the problems related to it's having been used.
