Hard window valence removal

I have a 2016 Jayco Whitehawk 23MRB. I need to re-thread the nylon cord in the blinds. I have seen videos online how to handle that task but my challenge is how to remove the rigid valance or window trim to be able to get at the blind unit itself. Anyone have experience getting these things off?

The small window is not in the slide. Thoughts on how to get at it??

They are screwed to the ceiling of the slide. I bought a 6" #2 square bit for my drill. Look up right in front of the blinds and you should see the screws. There is also probably an "L" bracket holding the side wings. Once you get it off you can remove the blind to restring it.

Thanks for the reply. Please look at the new photo I posted. The small side window is not attached to roof and not sure how to get at it. Any ideas?

That probably has two small "L" brackets attached to the wall that the valance is sitting on and those screws are probably on the ends. I know a "PITA" to get to.

Look up inside to the top of the valance. You should see a couple of L brackets. Just remove the screws that go into the top piece and the unit should lift off. If it has Lambrequins, they may be attached with small L brackets also.

I used a long extension for the bit to reach up and unscrew the blind from the valence. Left the valence in place.
