Removing them is easy and can be DIY. Getting the damn things back in again is a black art. I have profound respect for Sir Jim the (retired) Windscreen Magician.

If you are going to the drama of removing the screens, its a damn good idea to invest in a new windscreen rubber(s). This means you can butcher the old ones to get the screens out. Some careful cutting with a Stanley knife removes most of the tension. Put a blanket over the bonnet/boot to catch the glass if things go pear-shaped. Sit on the front seat, and gently ease out the screen by pushing with your feet. Have your handy helper catch the glass - this is a two-man job. Push from one side first, then work across the screen.

Cheers,
Harv
