Attaching Window Film on Door Glass

I am trying to attach some window film on the Scamp door glass so others can't see in. Is there a way to get the screen off so I can atach it to the bottom part? Thanks

The PO of my scamp put it on the outside of the window.

I scraped it off and put up a curtain.

Barry, the posters above are correct.... but, I understand your problem. See if anything in this link helps: How to replace a sliding RV window - by William Pando - Helium

Remember, with some window films... no one can see in, but neither can you see out...

This is what I've done to mine.
When we first got it, on the way home I threw my shirt over the door,
slammed the door. Didn't care for that. Tried to figure out a curtain
solution. But since it was taking us a while to get home, my daughter
liked a butterfly car window shield we saw. So I purchased one and
velcroed the corners. On my trailer there's not any room between the
screen door and door. I'm not comfortable taking windows and such
out which would be the probable way to get the window where you could
do a tint job. Whether temporary or permanent, this is working for us.

To answer the question.....There is two stop screws in the window track at the top when removed will allow the window to go up further , then carefully raise one side of screen high enough so that the other side pops out...word of caution even with the mirrored tint on mine, with light on in trailer, you can still see in at night, not good but you can if that is a concern to you

Thanks everyone for the tips. I did Hambone's idea. It worked out slick. I think someone would need to get right up to the glass to see any detail of our beautiful bodies or see any action taking place.
