Replacing roll screens - how to remove?

cityscape23August 7, 2009

Another old Pella window question - we've got old roll screens, torn and rusted. Some have been cut and replaced with badly fitted flat screens. I've seen replacement roll screens, but how do I remove the housing for the screen at the top of the window simply? I'm not that experienced in DIY home repair. Or is it better to cut the screen off and remove the side tracks and just fit them for flat screens?

Thanks for helping - much appreciated.
