Finally got around to attempting this on mine. The yellowing had gotten so bad the screens were almost unreadable.

When I managed to get the screens out it was immediately apparent just how bad the sun damage was. The inner screen literally crumbled and fell apart when I touched it.

All seems good now though.

I am still thinking of adding a bead of silicone over where the outer screen now seats in the unit.

Nice job. Mine don't really suffer from misting either.
