Rolling Shade in Door

I need to repair the rolling shade that is in the door of my 1988 Excella. It is seems that the shade is slightly wider than the opening so that it can follow the curvature. However, it isn't apparent how to remove the shade to repair it. Any advise on how to do this?

Like any roll up

It too is like most roll up shades you may or may not have seen. It fits into a hole on one end and a slot on the other.
If you lift it on the left side (I think) it will come out. Be warned it is difficult to get back in.

I have actually replaced them with new shades. You can cut a a roller to length.

There are some shades that are preforated to cut to fit

My fingers are too big to get up in there, so I found it easier to drill out a few rivets round the window area. This enables the inner skin of the door to move out and give more room to remove the blind. I used a 1/8 inch drill bit to remove the old rivets, and 1/8 inch rivets with white heads (ACE hardware) when re-building. Nick.
