    On a recent trip one of the window blinds end piece broke and made a slight tear to the blind materiel as well so the blind will not stay down (closed). Does anyone know how to remove the whole blind from the window so that I can look at a repair it is a seitz blind with net behind and both pull down from the top.
    thanks in advance for any help.

    you need to remove the inner trim and unscrew the frame. Do make sure the window is supported outside or it may well fall out.

    Don't know wether yours is the same as ours, but it has a silver flat bar at the bottom and ours ripped off all along and the blind went up and all tension gone but if you get the bar off , it only slides off then fold the blind around the thin plastic thing and slide it on again then take the the cover off the top of the blind and tension it up again with screw driver, no need to remove it.
    Probably not very clear but if you want more info just ask(y)
