Fresnel screen replacement for Canon 5D MK1

I know you can get replacement focusing screens for Canon Mk 1 so when mine fell out I was surprised but not too worried.
Now I can't find out how to put it back and if I do is it likely to keep on happening?
Any help would be appreciated.

Here you go Pen. Changing focusing screen video

I cleaned my 5D MK 1 one a couple of times and it never fell out after putting it back in again after cleaning. Smile

So glad you're there I thought you'd emigratedTongue PM on way.

Emigrate from Durzet, you must be joking. Smile

Just very busy.

Worked a treat. Still trying to work out how it fell out though.
I'm going to replace it as it has a mark on it that really bugs me now I've noticed it.
Thanks for your help Kris.
