maybe you shade doesn't close all the way because the glass is sitting to low, readjust the glass to a higher height, unscrew the lid retaining screws, push the glass up, then tighten the screws and see if you can close the shade

hey thanks for the reply i failed to find out what is keeping the passengers tab from sliding back and forth, as a result the window is piped out just a bit but when i put the shade back on it worked fine x)
i guess thats a plus haha

I have a 2006 BMW 330i, the information was helpful I took of the sunroof glass but when I was going to remove shade the clips are different they don't have screws, do you know how can I remove them?

Thanks
