Screen removal
 
Wondering if the window screens, specifically the screen above the sink and the one next to it, in my 2002 Flagstaff come out for cleaning and if so how? Thankyou.

They are held in place by spring-loaded fiction clips. To remove them, you gently pry the screen away from the window to reveal the clips' locations. (Should be two on the left and right, near the top and bottom of the sides.) Again, apply gentle pressure at these points to pop the screen out taking care not to bend the screen's frame. This is not a "user friendly" attachment method. Getting them back in is harder than it should be.
Be patient, slow and gentle so as not to bend anything.

^Quite right and good advice. Be careful! Or clean with a sponge or damp cloth without removing them. Blow dust or cottonwood out with air pressure (keyboard blower can if not an air compressor) of flap a towel right at it - this works surprisingly well!

Thankyou. This site is invaluable to a beginner like myself. Will have many more questions in the near future I'm sure.
