Leaves in vents

I have vent covers over my vents (there are three vents) and I have accumulated live oak leaves and other leaves and pine needle that lay on the screens.

What is the easiest way to clean these out-
-get on the roof and remove the covers and vacuum them or
-carefully remove the four screws that hold the vent mechanism frame in place

I am thinking the inside way (removing the frame) and cleaning the leaf debris is best and at the same time replace the piddly little fans one in the bathroom and one in the kitchen counter/stove area with a create a breeze unit or something similar

Mine as well. I am able to remove just the screen by prying with my fingers to pull the round screen down and clean off then snap them back in.

Some have little knob type pins that you spin to clear the screen ring and then pull it down. After ….you re install the screen and turn the little pillars back around to hold them in.

I have used air compressor and blow gun pistol that have a good venturi tip that about triples air flow. Great for smaller compressors. I use on windows screens and carefully/skilfully on A/C fins I frequent areas that have cottonwood trees

I usually try blowing the stuff out with compressed air and if that fails I take the screen off from the inside.
