I'm afraid Andersen no longer makes a cover without screw holes. That said, I think our 39-154 could still work. Your operator should have the accommodating screw holes. Let me know if it doesn't, though, and we can work from there.

Since my old cover didn't use screws, and I will be ordering the version that does use screws (part # 39-154) do you have the screws available for it in stone color?

Well, it would depend on what Andersen operator you have now. There are a few different styles that use the same kind of covers. The newer operators like the 39-095 use a 1-3/8" screw that goes through the cover and into the window sill. You could damage your operator with a screw that was too long. Personally, I believe it would be best to use a short flat head screw like the 33-080 (or even shorter) to fill up the holes in the cover. To keep the screw in place, try using a little bit of caulking, maybe a silicone type. Check with a local hardware store in your area to see what they suggest.
