    It depends mate on which blind but have a look up the top and on the side right level with the rollers and see if you see two holes with slots in, If so they are quite easy, but some need removing,

    Retensioning blinds are delivered with the correct amount of tension in the spring. However, it may be
    necessary in the future to adjust the spring. On the left hand side of the cassette you will find two
    tensioning screws. The top one is for the fly screen and the lower screw is for the sun screen. Rotate
    clockwise 1 or 2 turns until the correct tension is reached. The blinds should rewind without stopping or
    in a sluggish manner. Take care no to over tighten the spring.
