How do you remove a screen frame to replace screen?

I didn't notice when I bought the rig that one of the screens is missing. Looks like they couldn't get in so they cut the screen neatly all along the frame and probably were able to get in through the unlocked window.
Usually I've seen these with just a springy thing that allows it to be pushed up and out. Is Airstream different?

A window screen? Should be several phillips screws holding the frame in place. Remove them, then unscrew the set screws on the lift arm knobs and remove them. Unlatch the window latches, and pull the frame off.

I'll look again. This is on a '92 300LE motorhome, so it's the sliding type screen. It slides easy enough, but couldn't figure out how to pop it out of it's channel to replace the screen only.

I'll check better this time.

Assuming the 92 windows are the same as 84 310 windows then the sliding windows have a plastic track on the bottom (can't remember if there is one at the top) that the window and screen slides on. It's held in by a tiny Phillips head screw at each end. You have to carefully remove those screws and slide the plastic track out. The plastic track is made of unobtainium so be careful with it. Once the plastic track is out you may or may not have to remove the window trim that surrounds the window on the inside. I removed the trim on my 310 but I don't remember if it was a must or not.

Now you should be able to lift the screen up and and then pull out on the bottom. Installation is reversing the steps above.

Ok I'll check that now. I'd like to be able to open that window without having bugs fly in. It's the one closest to the entry door.

By the way, I've seen the driver and passenger windows on SOB's having screens on them, but I would assume that the Airstreams did not? There are no screen frames there.

I've never seen a Classic or Argosy cockpit window with screens. That would have been a nice feature
