    Hi All

    My roof light shutter and fly screen have gone all "wonky". The strings seem to have come off some sort of guides.

    Anyone have a fix for this?

    Thanks

    any repair can only be done by removing the housing from the ceiling to allow access to the tension spring assembly.

    Thanks for the reply

    So are you saying Wildman that the whole roof light has to come out, or just the inside finishing trim?

    All done. Easy once I worked out how the cords ran. The spung end had come out because the glue had failed. 20150607_171809.jpg 20150607_171824.jpg
