    It should just stay in the folded position if you don't want it up, my car has one and it's a little bit intermittent, thinking back my mrs's one was the same. Don't think there's a particular clip, it just sits in the plastic base bit on the shelf, a quick fix could be a bit of blue-tac, only a little bit in the bit it sits in and it should stay down. Otherwise it may mean spending money on a new shelf, there's a used on on ebay for £35 I think.

    Good luck.

    Mine clips in in the down position... can't really see from the ad if your unit has any clips- having said that I keep mine up all the time...

    Guys it is a metal bar on the out side edge, it just loose's shape over time just hold the bottom bar and the top and stretch it a little bit it will then fit back in the locking clip no problem its a bit like a coat hanger just need to reshape it ever so slightly!

    Aye, good point Gaz. My blind's always up anyhow due to lack of auto dimming rear view mirror and people driving around with badly adjusted headlights or foglights on, the FOOLS! :gun2:
