How do I unstick the rear window shade

Rear window shade worked fine until it was in retracted mode today. Now it is stuck inside the rear seat. When I push the button to activate it only clicks. No movement.

Is this a good question?

Well, after about 20 attempts and waiting a few days, eureka. It worked again. It is back in the up position. Now, there is no %#*@ way I am going to push the down button again


Jimmie Jaye Wells, You made my day :-) . I hear Ya! I feel the same way some days. Sorry you were still having trouble, thanks for replying back.

Jimmie Jaye Wells, Check to see if anything is blocking it and perhaps you could give it a gentle helping hand as a 2nd person operates the control. It could be a few things, activator, fuse(if you hear motor,fuse OK),plastic gears for up/down function misaligned/clogged/jammed or motor for shade operation faulty. If it is a bad motor, you may want to consider just having the window tinted and save a lot of cash as it is a very expensive repair. Below are some forum links that also discuss the issue. Good luck. I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.
