    Rear Window Shade Direction

    I installed a rear window shade in my 95 840. After bolting it down and making all connections, when I turn it on, it starts and suddenly stops. It goes horizontally in direction of the rear window, which stops it, instead up verticallly up the window. I have not installed the shelf yet. What did I do wrong?

    OPPS, found the problem: I was putting it in backwards. Duah.

    Finally got 'er done. I have finished completely re-doing the entire rear shelf including adding a shade. And it works, well 90% works. I'll "Leave well enough alone"! This was a year-long project.
