Is the screen electric? I dont have electric and it come off to clean it by unscrewing the seven screws and no discmantling of the faining.

If it is electric I am sure someone will point you in the right direction.

Remove the inner panel at each side of the screen (four screws).

To get the screen off, it`s usually also needed to loosen the center part.

Then you also need to remove the knee pads (three screws each side) and remove the small plastic bits between knee pads and center part........to get acces to the center part mounting screws.

Being an RS all I had to do was remove 2 inner panels as Inge suggested, take the six screws out (only three were attached) and slide it out!
New screen is in, i've got to get a new set of screws from the boltman and i'm putting little rubber grommets on them and all should be OK
thanks for the help
