Are you sure they are actually missing or did they just come off and retract under the moulding? If they are actually removed you can probably find some on ebay.

Re: Privacy Shades

No...they can come off the track easily. Look down in the door. Usually what happens is the leather that wraps over the door from the inside starts to peel up and it catches on the shade.

You can use anything with a hook or curved end that is small enough to fit in there. I got a set of picks from harbour freight for a couple bucks that would work great. Anyways, pull the shade up just past the top of the door and then grab it. There are a couple failure scenarios. If you close the shades can you see two little black pieces go up the door on either side? If so then the bar just needs to be inserted into the ends of those little black pieces. If not, then are the little black plastic pieces on the ends of the bar going through the shade? If so then they need to be reattached to the carriers that lift the shade. Good luck.
