window screens for 345 motorhome removal & replacement

Anybody know how to remove and replace the screens? I just had my windows tinted and removing the screens wasn't easy. I don't want to mess them up putting them back in.

Also, anyone know where I could find replacements for the ones I bent taking taking them out?

How would someone clean the windows if these screens can't be removed?

The curved windows in the rear weren't easy to tint either, but the guy I found did a fantastic job. Anybody in the area (Portland OR) should call Jeff to get their windows tinted. His number is 503-209-9146.

hi Peter, I have a 250 motorhome and want to replace the screen material on the frames but can't figure out haw to get at the whole screen to do so. Did you find out any way to remove the screens from the window frame? Or do you know of any way to replace the screens while the screen frames are still in the window frame?

There are little Phillip screws that you can see from outside the coach. I am having my windows tinted and that's what I figured out. Hope this helps.

Those screen are a royal pain: I removed ours and only put them back in when we're in bug country, which is not that often. That way you can keep the windows and channels clean. I marked all of ours as to location, they are all different +- size on our coach. Developing a "warping" technique to get them in and out is a learned art.
