Has anyone had experience with rear window sunscreen on 05 VDP. There is a click when button is pushed but no action. Fuse good. It seems someone has cut an access hole in the trunk forward finish carpeting, maybe to give it a push? I'm sure I can survive without it but would be nice if everything worked. Thamks.

Two person operation. Have someone press the button on the overhead console while you stick a credit card or pick in between the sunscreen assembly and base to give it a boost out of the assembly base.

Also check the corners for binding.

After getting mine sorted I leave the rear sunscreen in the extended position and cycle it once monthly. That seems to do the trick.

Yes. Had same issue and solved as described!

Add some light oil at pivot points if so inclined...

I did it alone...moving it up and down a bit manually. Now that I use it regularly, no issues.

Thanks guys; Pried the hell out of it yesterday to no avail. Pushed the button today and it zipped right up. Tom

Mine sometimes would go up no problem other times I'd need to prise it up and press the button at the same time to get it to move, but it has been working flawlessly, since I changed out the battery which seemed to be good, but turned out to have a bad cell.
