Roof vents

Hi everyone,
I need a little bit of help.
I need to change the 12 x 12 cover on my forward roof vent. it is just a simple crank up type. However I can not figure out how to pop the screen out to get at the crank mechanism.
I removed the crank handle and the two screws holding the screen.However, the screen did not drop down like I expected. It can t go up because of the crossbar and I cannot figure out what the trick is to get it to drop down.
Did not want to use a lot of muscle till I asked!!!

On mine, there are 4 screws around the bezel that had to be removed before the screen would come out, and there was a gooey caulk holding it up there. I slid a screwdriver in behind and gently pryed it down.

Don't believe everything you think.

Mine has 2 screws holding the screen in and 1 screw holding the crank. After that mine has the dicor tape around the top and screws holding it in place. I gently pried it off and replaced it and then put a vent cover so rain can't get in while open. Simple job and easy to complete.

Thanks guys,
No problem making the change after I took the entire sleeve out of the opening.
Four screws and everything dropped down!
