How to remove window drapes without damaging plastic clips

How to remove Drapes in '96 Winnebago Adventurer MH.(These are not the original drapes- they were replaced with what is in coach now in 2006 or so).

The Glide-tape had detached from the track on the passenger side only, so in order for me to be able to open the drape, I severed/cut the part of the glide-tape which became detached. Now I have 1/2 of the passenger side drape intact, still attached to the track, while the rest of the glide-tape is still on the track but with no drape attached.

I need to remove the drape to get it repaired but was told to bring in only pass.side drape. I was told the glide-tape would be sewn back on- (which I cannot do). Once repaired, I would pick up the drape and put it on. (This to save me the cost of having shop remove it and install when finished.) There are white plastic "clips" on the glide-tape which I think I can remove, but I am worried I will break one or some in so doing. Is there an easy way to remove only the passenger side drape and glide-tape without damaging anything?

thanks, mickpick

I don't understand your terminology, could you post a picture?

I push towards the ceiling, with the plastic clip, an use a sharp knife, but small flat head screw driver would work. Put the sharp thing in at the top of the clip and twist towards the curtain.

Without pictures I thought you take out the screw on the end of the track and slide them off.

I have the drapes with the white clip that slides onto the strip attached to the MH. I unscrew the strip and slide drape off to launder. I am not exactly sure what your question is.

Was able to remove the screw and the drape came off easily with no problem. Thanks to all again for your advice.
