cargo cover/roller shade

Is there a way to repair the roller shade for the cargo area? Mine doesn't want to roll up right when I close my hatch. I've checked several sites (Hawks, Youngs, Fbody Warehouse, etc.) with no luck.

Re: cargo cover/roller shade

Mine does the same thing. When I close the hatch, the cover doesn't roll up right away but over time it rolls back up. I have a spare one to put on my car right now so I'm going to put that in for now and take apart my old one to see if I can repair it.

Also, does anybody know if the 91-92 cars came with the cloth cover or the leather cover? The replacement I have is the leather cover while the stock one is cloth.

Re: cargo cover/roller shade

I have been told that the cars with cloth interior had a cloth shade, and the leather cars have leather ones. I have the same problem with mine, although mine falls out of the slots on the hatch and then rolls up on its own.

Re: cargo cover/roller shade

I guess it was a year thing. Looks to me like the later cars got the cloth shade.

My car had the cloth, and the interior is leather. I know that you could order it special order through the parts dept at you friendly GM dealer, with that being said, I am sure that it may have been a factory option that you could add when ordering your GTA.

Re: cargo cover/roller shade

On TGO there have been a few threads posted about fixes:

By the way, my '84 T/A has the vinyl, both my '88 GTA's and my '89 Firebird have the cloth.

Re: cargo cover/roller shade

Interesting .... my '88 has cloth interior and a leather shade. I guess it depended on the mood of the factory worker the day they installed it.

My red GTA has the cloth trim and the leather (or vinyl) cargo shade, whereas my Notchback GTA has a fiberglass one.
