Vent below the windscreen

Opened the vent up underneath the windscreen and to my horror found that it had rotted through and I could see the floor inside my Jeep, I have sealed this vent as a temporary measure.

I have cleaned out the vent tube into the engine bay which was probably the original cause. Can this box be replaced or should i just get busy with the fibreglass, the marks on the side of the box lead me to think that i have got some parts missing from inside this box.

I would be very grateful if anyone can help, or even supply a picture of the inside of their vent box

Thanks in advance

You definitely need to fix it to keep water out. I would patch it as well.

Europe is 1 model year ahead of us because of the metric system.
