    I recently paid about $450 to have a side window shade repaired. I would appreciate information on doing this myself. What is the retract mechanism? It seems to be some spring-loaded tensioner.

    The mesh screens are in good shape. My problem is that there is no longer any tension on them--they just flop down.

    Thanks for any advice.
