Unless you really want to reuse the screen rubber, use a stanley knife to cut the rubber around the screen. Otherwise it is a case of removing the silver trim, and using your feet and maybe some help (OK, at least one other person) push the screen out Must be a youtube video somewhere...

 

Refitting. Fit rubber to the screen. Bit of thin but strong cord (tent guyline?) around the rubber with a decent crossover at the top. Washing up liquid/water brushed around the rubber may help.

Place againt the aperture, somebody pressing the screen into the aperture, and from the inside pull teh cord. It flips the rubber over the metal lip and job done.

Sounds easy. Search youtube, really very helpful for allsorts of jobs. Most old cars use the same technique.

Done this many times using the cord technique, the only thing I would add is to use a different lubricant as washing up liquid has a high concentration of salt in it which you don't want trapped under the rubber. Red brake grease would be better as it not corrosive.
