    Did it on my last Hymer, took the whole unit out and replaced one of the strings, did it on the lounge floor used black kite line brought on eBay. Fairly easy to do but quite time consuming, need to get the strings exactly the right length or the blind won't pull across evenly.

    Thanks Lenny it happened on our last trip out to Spain just got home and having to do some 'minor' repair /service jobs especially on the fly screens. Although its had full services to date they seem to miss the blinds!!
