Tank Vents

Our water tanks started to leak when over filling. Instead of the water flowing out of the hose that should ventilate the tanks it pushes out of the lid. We also noticed that there is a vacuum in the tanks after use. The hoses are free, without kinks and there is no water standing in them which would prevent air to flow through them. Somebody suggested to clean or even remove the little screen at the end of the vent. That seems like a good idea but I can’t figure out how to get to that screen. From the inside I can only see the fitting that connects the hose to the outside and from the outside there is that little vent cover which I can’t remove.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.
