Removing window treatments

Hi folks
I need to replace the shade on this window. Is there a trick to removing the window treatment to get to the shade? Iím not seeing any obvious mounting points except the two on either side at the bottom

What tool worked best to get to those screws out of the walls?

How did you do it? I've wondered the same thing, I'd kind of like to put in blinds.

Thanks

Does the valence not come off with a couple of screws? Mine are pretty easy to get off, after which I have full access to the top blind mounting (my dining table blind is really wide and gets screwed up from time to time).

It's much easier if you remove the valance first. My valances only have 4 screws. The screw heads are #2 square drive. They use those heads on most everything on the MH or trailer. I've replaced all my shades with MCDs.

Removing window treatments

You really have to remove the valance to do it.
First I removed the the phillips screw from each side at the bottom from the wall leaving the bracket still attached to the valance. Remove the round Ďbuttoní that holds the shade cord.
Then there are two screws up top behind the shade (bi&ch to get to!). Once these are removed, the valance comes right down with the shade still attached to it.Click image for larger version

Then just remove broken shade from valance and attach the new one to the valance and reinstall valance.
Lastly is attaching the new buttons where the old ones were.

Sorry for the bad pics
