sliding screen double patio doors
 
I can't get my sliding screen door off to replace the screen. It has a lip on the top and bottom that even with the loosen screws wont clear without bending the frame or breaking the front of the lip.
They are lightweight metal doors. I've changed other screen sliders so I know about the wheels but I've never seen doors that don't seem to have a way to take them off? the frame doesn't have screws to take off so I'm really confused,

Derpending on design, you may need to either remove the screws or run them all the way in. This will either raise or lower the door with sufficient clearance to pull the door away from the top or bottom. You may also need to raise the door by hand to get clearance at the bottom.
See if this works for you.
