SeaView owners out there, how to replace the windows screens

I have a 2000 SeaView 8310 and need to replace all the window screens but can't figure out how to remove the existing ones. There seems to be no room to lift them up/out or to slide them out. Any suggestions how to go about it?

To remove the screens from the unit is a real pain in the butt. To remove them slide them to the center of the window. Very carefully bow the screen half way up the screen on both sides. The screen frame will bow but you can ruin them with to much pressure pulling them out. Hope this helps

Note the old plastic channels can be brittle especially in the cold. Works better on a hot day or use a heat gun or hair dryer to warm them up (don't melt)

Note the plastic track at the bottom of the screen it's easier to leave the screen closed and carefully slide this plastic track out from under the screen then you can lift the screen out. reverse the above to replace the screen.

You need to pull the plastic track out first. I pulled mine to clean them and the window frames really well as the PO never cleaned and the coach had sat for 5 years on a wooded lot. I did not put the plastic track back in afterwards and have had no trouble with screens staying in place so they will probably stay out permanently
