    i think i need a new blind as the blackout roller blind is a bit crumpled and does not roll back up fully. Do i have to buy the complete blind or can i get just the roller? 1991 fiat kontiki 6 berth

    Just the blind on my van, not even the roller, possibly different on yours but unlikely.

    Hi you can get just the blind but if it is not too crumpled you will probably get away with re-tensioning it.Search on here I have done a couple of post on how to re-tension blinds-- no time yet to find link, but will later if you are stuck

    As Terry said re-tension should work, it is the same as normal roller blinds to do this. Crumpled will probably smooth out, If you feel unable wait until you can attend a meet and then someone should be able to show you.

    thanks for the advice... That sounds a good idea as the blind is not torn...
