    Default Rear blinds hook install

    So door cards fitted.
    I have the hooks and reinforcement plates, but I can't see how they fit. Obviously the 2 prongs in the hook locate in the 2 holes in the door frame.
    But how does the plate fit?
    I'm assuming the hook fits on one of the little lugs
    Where do the prongs go?
    Any pointers very much appreciated.

    Might be wrong but isn’t that metal bit something to do with the sun visor? I certainly don’t have them on my door blinds.

    I looked through previous posts, and got the part numbers. Must have bought them several years ago.
    It's listed as PLATE,REINFORCEMENT,SUNSHADE,WINDOW,REAR SIDE

    So you just have the hook?
    How does it stay in place?

    Pull the rubber down that goes around the top of the door frame. You will see two mounting points with two holes in each.

    One hole is bigger than the other as are the pins on the back of the plastic hook things. Ignore those metal parts as they are not for this job,.

    Line up the first book and use a sharp hobby knife etc to cut the rubbers around the hook as it sits in the frame, don't cut masses off, just enough, as you can always trim it further if beeded.

    Once done do the other one, then repeat for the second door.

    I can post some pics if needed but it really quite an easy task once you see the holes in the frame that are there on all vectra and signum rear doors.
