    Hi All,
    our 2006 Apache 700 SE has two blinds in the rear lounge with broken end 'bits' that secure them down in the closed position, we can live with it - however SWMBO wants to change the pair - they are starting to tear in the corners. Anyone know what/who makes them so we can replace?
    They are roller downs, fly-screen nearest the window and the blackout/thermal (shiny side out) on the inside.
    We plan to renew them but not too sure where to get them from - had a look but couldn't see any manufacturers marks on them. They are not the concertina type, more like roller blinds in frames.

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Regards,

    Trikeman.

    Try Remis blind spares on Ebay. What colour are the end hooks, black are remis blinds. Seitz blinds are white/cream.

    Thanks for getting back - the blinds are in fact Seitz and after a bit of shopping around I found a dealer who sells all the bits, reasonable too.
    Leisureshopdirect.(y)
    Two blinds needed repair so I refitted the fly-net (after learning how to un-tension and re-tension the mechanisms) after that 'flew out' and the small end clip (SP336) that broke on the other I now have on order.
    Not so complicated afterall.:whistle:

    Regards,

    Trikeman. ;)

    @Jaws
    Jaws,
    I found that you can re-tension the recoil springs - just done ours and they drift up nicely now.

    Regards,

    Trikeman.

    tried that.. sadly the spring has gone as weak as a weak thing .. Wind it up any more and it becomes coil bound... So needs a replacement..
    Will pop along to Leasureshop direct and it sorted out ! ( mine are actually the concertina type.. this is for my daughters unit :) )
