How to remove the screen from living room vent on a 2017 2800qs mh

The screens in our 2800qs 2017 are getting clogged by lint. How can the screens be removed or how do you clean your vents?

I open the vent and use the shopvac or small vacuum on reverse to blow all the crap out of the vent....

That is a maxxfan. The 4 little “L” clips turn and the screen will fall on your head.

Edit: No tools needed. Just pull down gently as you turn.

Yep... what Duckogram said.
We remove and clean ours pretty regularly.
A soft bristle dust brush works great. (outside of course)

Ahh... a QUESTION !!!!
If you go to a store that sells paint, you will find a pad that has two rollers on it that is used for trim work and edging. I use one of those to clean my screens. I use a solution of 16 oz bottle of water with TWO drops of DAWN dishsoap mixed in. It cleans all the screens and the air conditioner filters nicely. After the screens have dried, I will go over them with another pad treated with insecticide to keep away any unwanted bugz. You could also use RAIN-X to shed away any rain (or bugz) on the outside screens.
