Driver-side pull-down sun screen replacement- help

The retract spring broke, screen dropped down; I attempted to trigger the release (like an ordinary window blind) and pulled the screen out of the roller. Now I need to know how to remove the trim and access the roller. See MH description in my sig.
I've looked for a few months and found nothing on the internet for assistance. Sun can get really bright coming in the side window.

I went to Lowes and purchased a white room darkening standard home shade, solved the problem.

Ray...The cloth panel inserts in the wood trim come out with some difficulty ...they are held by velco. That will let you see inside the "box" but not sure it will help much. When we installed MCD shades we put the new shade on the bottom of the box, then added a trim piece in matching wood to hide the new shade. If it is too big a hassle to get inside the box, adding a new shade & trim would be a much easier solution. If you trim is oak, a piece of red oak from Lowes & light oak stain would march ...I tried a couple of light stains & got a great match last summer on my refrigerator trim.

Thanks Paul. My trim there is plastic (cheap looking). I'll grab my inspection mirror tomorrow and look up under there. I've got to be careful, my Bose sound system is mounted to that plastic trim piece. When I do get the old roller out, I'm going to buy a new roller shade Jamie talked about they try to replace the solid shade with the old sun screen material. That's just me, I like to be able to see, just not blinded by the sun.

My rig is different but I had the same problem.

I went to Lowe's and had them cut a window shade to the exact length ... I took the fabric off the roller ... put the original screen on the roller with spray adhesive and duct tape.

It has been up there for about 7 years ... still works

That stuns me, Ray ...that the Freedom had plastic trim there in 2000 while the Advantage had wood 2-3 years later ...and my Bose speaker is mounted to the ceiling or wall ---not sure which off-hand.

Hope to see you at SMART Natl Muster in Sep.

We will be there if our health holds up. I have my reservation confirmation in my email inbox. Plastic trim, there is no wood in the cockpit area except for the small console that holds the 10 CD auto-changer, and the new Cherry I added while installing the LED TV. All the cabinets are Cherry, but that beige plastic in the cockpit makes it look cheap.

Now that I know how to remove that trim, I'll work on it tomorrow. I've been using a 12"X14" piece of static-cling tinted sun-shade which works very well until a turn in the road.
