Hello and thank you for using justanswer.


  1. Rotate the sunshade so that the bottom edge is pointing straight down.
  2. Remove the sunshade from the anchor.



  1. Move the sunshade rearward, about 50 mm (2 inches) until the ridge on the sunshade stem (2) is flush to the slot in the flange (1).
  2. Pull down on the free end of the sunshade until a rectangular slot (3) appears between the flange and the retainer bezel. Maintain this pressure for the next two steps.



Important: The flat-bladed tool used to remove the sunshade must completely fill the slot on the sunshade flange. If there is any free play, the plastic flange will be distorted and the sunshade will not be released.

  1. Insert a flat-bladed tool in the flange slot. Hold this tool in a vertical position and maintain an upward pressure on the tool equal to the downward pressure on the sunshade.
  2. Quickly rotate the sunshade rearward approximately 100 mm (4 in). At this position you will feel a first disengagement.
  3. Maintain the upward pressure on the flat-bladed tool and now press upward on the free end of the sunshade. Then continue to rotate the sunshade towards the side door glass.
  4. Remove the flat-bladed tool and pull down on the front of the sunshade arm to separate it from the bezel.
