Sometimes the screen will push right back into place and the spline will press fit into that groove using the spline tool. If it's a small area, a butter knife or other blunt instrument will work. Wipe a little WD-40 or similar on the spline first. Often the rubber spline has dried and shrunk too much to be effective. If you replace the whole screen, the biggest problem will be to avoid deforming the frame. As the screen is pushed in the groove with the spline tool it will tend to pull the frame (especially the sides) inward. I would clamp the frame to the bench first in order to avoid this. The screen should be at least an inch bigger than the frame on all sides. Seat the screen with the tool and follow by seating the lubricated spline in place. It's not a difficult repair but takes some time. And be careful not to cut the screen with the tool.
You can purchase the screen and spline at any home improvement store.
