The screws are probably on the recessed edges, to secure into the curb from the sides. Scrape the goop and have a closer look.

Actually, there might be tabs (for the screws) under the lip.

Biggest POS ever sold, many have no screws, the plastic was attached with butyl caulk. Everyone that I see that needs repairing is completely torn out and replaced with a Velux or completely removed, by a roofer.

AZ sun, I'm surprised those plastic domes haven't cracked already.

I was able to find a replacement for an odd sized piece of junk skylight at Lowe’s, surprisingly enough.

Thanks guys we figured it out. Bottom peice pops off and it slides out. This AZ sun is pretty rough on them. They were cracked up plenty.
