Rear Blind Retro Fit by Chartermark (Page 1 of 3)

About 2 months ago I bought a used power operated rear window roller blind (attached to rear shelf), complete with switch (photo's attached). What with one thing or another, I hadn't got round to opening it, since delivery

My 75, is rigged with the wring already within the loom.

I'm going to book it in with my local dealer for a retro fit. Looking at it though after a clean up, I can't work out how it attaches to the upper part of the rear window case?

Are there parts missing, perhaps someone with experience could advise please?

Hi,

Can't see your photos, but it doesn't attach to the upper part of the window. It's attached under the shelf to the metal shelf and that's all.

There are moving arms in it that pop out and push it up the window.

Martin,

If you're in this vicinity, I'm sure we could arrange for the work to be done :)

Thanks Duncan,

I have now adjusted pics size so they show.

Yes I can see the 'scissor' movement upon the underneath, now you mention it.

Just didn't want the chaps at the dealers telling me there were some bits missing ...

Paul,

That's very kind, I have got a few calls in the midlands to catch up on after my shoulder re-alignment so perhaps I could stop overnight at the Premier and we could do it to suit. I hope it's not too much of a job. I got the shelf attached option as Jake told me theres much less work to fit. Also you can catch up on the full walnut interior and the Light Oak Wheel my specialist finished in Burr Walnut. By the way, I got the Osram Night Breakers in the end by the way. I try and avoid night driving, but was very impressed with a friends 45, who had fitted the recently.

Let me know when would suit?

Can see the photos now and it looks complete. The black bar you can see in the view from the top goes up the window, and is held up by some sliding arms controlled by those arms you can see at the bottom. There are also a coupl of little rubber wheels in case it touches the window on its way up.

Martin, I think a Sunday would be best. If that is possible, then the date would be largely up to you.

Thanks Duncan, quite clever really. What colour is the blind I've never actually seen one down?

They are black inside. I think you can see the rolled up fabric from underneath if you look under the aluminium bit.

Hello Mike,

Usually I stand about passing tools and cups of tea etc to Paul. I'm not quite sure whats involved on this one, (apart from the above of course) ...

Sounds great, I missed not seeing everyone at the last Nano.

I'm now OK the 30th as a definite, and I would stay overnight at Lichfield.

What time would you like to start on Sunday?
