Cranky Power Windshield Shade

Go to solution Solved by Mike H,

The driver's side power windshield shade sometimes just won't retract. ( there are 2 shades)Screenshot_20230917-200927_Gallery.thumb.jpg.0f63f006fb742c6bd178bd751b26a2fa.jpg I can fuss with the dash switch by repeatedly pushing it, and eventually it agrees to pull the shade up. Down is not an issue. Today when I took "him" out for excercise,  i was concerned it wasn't going to cooperate at all, so enough is enough. Your input is appreciated.

I had the same problem with mine a year ago.  I had to replace the switch.  When I went to unplug the switch pulled right of the switch housing.  It's a Carling switch and they can be found at NW RV Supply.  I'll have to go see what the part number for mine is.

Here's switch I had to replace for my shade and where I bought it.  I also bought an actuator removal tool but you can just use a flat head screwdriver instead.  The switch will come without the actuator so try not to break yours when removing it..
