Rear/Back Window Shade

My screen attempts to go up but seemingly is caught on something. It lifts the back plastic piece half an inch then stops.

Anyone else have this issue? What did you do to fix it?


I've googled and searched... and i think my search skills are failing as i keep getting rear passenger or something other than my issue.

i noticed on mine the leather that wraps and goes down into the window is loose, this was causing the shade to catch and get screwed up. I put pins in to keep it flush against the door.

if the leather is loose usually the problem is that the shade won't go down all the way. If the shade doesn't go up all the way but only half way and then goes back down again it could be because your window is slightly opened, i had that on mine, i had accidentally touched the window switch and went down by a few mm, it wasn't noticeable, so my shade on that door started acting weird by not rolling up. When inspecting it closely i noticed the window down a bit, rolled it up and then tried again the shade and it worked, so that's when i made the connection, have reproduced it again and it is indeed a link between them.
